That's sweet you picked up a 715 as well. Welcome to my world!
Anyway, I just recieved the camera in the mail today. I actually purchased it on eBay about a month ago from a seller in Germany. He said that it had been fully serviced recently so I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
Unfortunately I am waiting to get an English Manual and read it through before I turn on my camera. I spent a decent amount of money on it and definitely do not want to screw anything up. That being said, the camera is a thing of beauty. The lens of course is the best part, the zoom is so sweet! In addition to the lens, the camera seems to be really well put together all around. All of the buttons feel tight and in place. I'm really excited to put it to use.
So yeah, anyway, if I come across any English Manuals I'll let you know. I did email two places today, one in the U.S., that supposedly have them. If I hear anything I'll let you know.
So anyway, good luck to you man! If anyone else on this forum owns the Bauer S 715 XL and has any tips any advice would be much appreciated.
Have a nice day!
