    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos NOT OK to edit
    My girlfriend always complains about the big size and weight of the AF we normally use (Nikon N8008s). She really prefers the feel of smaller and lighter cameras (the new adquisition, Canon A1, for example; or my old Minolta X300, another example). OK... BUT she really enjoys the advantages of an AF, so now here I am, trying to find an AF with the format of a manual body... if that exists at all!!?? too much to ask, isn't it?

    Well, my first option was and still is a Nikon N2020. It seems that this one could, more or less, fullfil her demands, specially since she also likes simple controls. Do you have any other idea? I must say that I see Pentax and Minolta AF bodies really ugly and not light at all! (at least those from the 90's, which is were my search takes place). So I was thinking if Canon rebels could be a better option.
    Any suggestion to satisfy this difficult demand... :confused:

    Something like a Pentax MZ-5 is quite light and compact and offers both auto and manual features.
