This is actually a pretty good camera. Full auto exposure, 6x6 frame size, light, easy to carry, simple build but robust.
Yeah, the lens is wide. Yep, it vignettes. Of course there are certainly better cameras available. None of which means that this one is not a good option.
Whether or not it is worth the price is up to the purchaser. As for the camera, it can certainly deliver the goods if you do your part.
