I'm surprised it doesn't have Image Stabilization!

It uses the Illy-system image stabilization system, or as some people call it, decaf.

I always have loved single focal length zoom lenses. You see them on eBay all the time!

Sounds like a pretty decent Retina...just beware that batteries for this model are very tough to find...
:D

I might have bought it from you but you didn't say,"[email protected]@K! [email protected]!" and unless it's minty or chocolatey, I'm really not interested.....:D

Oh yes, but I am pretty sure the TTL exposure cameras use a slightly different voltage.






Thanks folks, I'm here all week!
