    Default A1 is almost the same price as A2

    i've ask arnd shops and they quote me $1300-$1500 for A1

    but there's a uncle quoted me $1300++ cannot remember for A1 and $1300 w/oGST for A2 with 256CF card and a leather bag...

    which is a better deal or should i get

    in this case think you give up on A1
    many oversea price is around 1000 only
    A2 ... too high end again for newbie
    try some lower end model like Minolta Z3 or Canon A80 ?
    of cos if you have the money to burn i cant stop you from buying expensive camera(not saying that they dun worth the money but just too high to start off)

    you want high zoom ? you want dvd quality video ? you want 1cm marco ?
    Z3
    you want something cheap and good quality picture ?
    A80

    both have manual control and semi manual control
    really a hard choice

    althought i am a A80 user and A80 is really a good cam but if you give me a choice now to choose ......... i will go for Z3 for it 12X zoom, 640x480 30FPS movie mode... marco .... well i can always add a filters hehe
    so ask yourself worth paying around $200 more for high zoom and video mode ? ask yourself do you really need it ?

    but 1 thing about Z3 is really look like a piece of plastic toy ........
