I believe Nikon bought out Minolta. We had a photo
shop rep speak at one of our club meetings in regards to photograpy
techniques and she was the one who mentioned Konica Minolta had sold
out to Nikon . I have the DiMAGE Z 3 with 12X Optical, 4X Digital,
4.0 MP and just love it. I see Nikon has one they are advertising now
with similar features and it looks just like mine. Wish I had more
MP's but seem to be getting some nice close-ups with 4. The anti-shake
feature is a GREAT benefit for those close-up with the super macro
I know several people, who are far more knowlegeable about photography
than I, could give you more and better information.
