Just curious about the new Konica-Minolta DiMAGE Z5...
Any ideas on when to expect the review?

Meanwhile, any thoughts on image quality vs. Z3 (which has been bashed by many for soft images)?

:D

It's been a month, why is no one paying attention to the z5? I'm eager for reviews.

A couple of days ago I found a Russian photo site with user comments on cameras (can't find the link right now). There were quite a few comments about Z5 - and boy, it looks like its the same old noisy story...

Too bad

maybe because it's just the same camera with same optics as Z3, and the only change is bigger LCD and CCD with more pixels(but same phisical size :( ). not sure what's wrong with Konica-Minolta but seems that they just putting more attention into putting new models on market than improving image quality:-\
BTW I've seen same problems with the noise on the images I've seen so far, so guess that if I had to buy camera now and would have choice between Z3(which I'm currently own) and Z5 I would probably still get Z3, but I'll wait more reviews for the final descision.

PS I'm fan of Minolta cameras starting from Dimage X20, merging later to F200 and now to Z3. And I really looking they start to develop cameras with improving noise problem and image softness.
