Hey this camera is for sale, pretty much brand new at my local camera shop. They want $275 for it does that seem about right? I saw one going for $229 on a German website (sketchy to me). Whats everyones opinion on this. I think its a great looking camera as well as a good performing camera. Anyone have any negative opinions on this camera from person experience or word of mouth.

I have one and I think it's a nice camera, but maybe you can find a better one for that money.

Positive:
Bright viewfinder, easy to focus

Negative:
Only meters 40/160 ASA

Great camera but WAY overpriced. You can get one for $50 on EBAY. Also check out the 64, basically the same camera, doesn't do 24fps but so what.
