This is one of the most satisfying cameras I'm owned. While features are few, it excels in the most important category: picture quality. The lens performance matches its reputation for sharpness and high contrast while minimizing distortions and vignetting. Exposure is usually spot-on (with print film). The "weather-proofing" is a plus, allowing you to take the camera where other cameras are left home. Pictures taken in the surf and pool were sparkling. The "super-scope" waist finder allows...

I bought this camera as a point and shoot solution when my eyesight went south and I wanted to take photographs of my children when they were young without the difficulty of SLR.

Fave taken loads of film with my Yashica T5. I always get good results, and it beats minilux, olympus xa, olympus mju, and ricoh gr1v. A fantastic camera! If you buy one it won't let you down!! (read more)

If you relax and let the camera make the decisions, you'll nearly always get good results. (read more)

I wanted a point and shoot to supplement my SLR and to have something that I could carry all the time and use in all wather conditions. All of my cameras (film and digital) have Zeiss optics and that was an important feature. I researched the field and couldn't find any other camera (aside from the Contax T2) which would fill these qualifications. I have NOT been disappointed. The Zeiss lens has never let me down.
