A think that a new generation can really appreciate this camera though. It is really a superior point and shoot with an excellent lens and a solid mid-sized body. This is an early model with "silent mode", which lives up to the name; the photographer can hear it but from a few feet away the camera is inaudible. You activate silent mode by holding "MF" while turning the camera on.
This camera is in excellent condition and works perfectly. The lens is clean and scratch-free.
