is that normal.
i am worried a lot ,please tell me if you know.

I'm getting close to purchasing an A1, so your problem interests me quite a bit.

Have you posted an example of the problem - a sample shot?

If you get an answer would you please post it here? (Or, if you like I can post your question on dpreview once you post a sample shot.)

i think i have solved out

as i said ,i went to TCR this morning,after i showed them the problems (the moniter) , i got a new one immediatly, this time was ok, i took some photos just half hours ago, that look ok,it does not achieve my expectation in fact,but it is still a great camera, the price is 780pounds,but you d better be careful .when you turn it on,check the moniter with lens cap if there are some lines appear frequentely.sorry about my poor english,i will post some pics when i got the ways .

Thanks. I take it from your post that you got an A1 that had a bad LCD monitor (screen on the rear of the camera).

I was a bit confused and thought you were seeing problems on your computer monitor.

(I'm guessing that TCR is a store....)
