I've bought mine on ebay in UK last year. I searched one for a friend... and I'm still searching !

I think people here are con-ists

It is an impressive camera. It handles like a K10D. The AF is faster than on K20D... It even works well with my DA 12-24... starting at 17.
I'm using the Sigma 28-70 on it most of the time. A big lens for a small camera.

Great, thanks to those pictures, I now want one based on its capabilities AND cute factor.

Though, for cute factor nothing beats an Auto 110.

Man, I missed that ebay listing for the *ist with lens and BNIB on Japan ebay. AS I could not read japanese, I searched it again about 2 days after I saw the listing and it was gone. USD $450 including lens.

Found this on flickr:
hehe . . . this pic is very poisonous. Makes those that see it want to buy it . . .

I have 2 Super As. One of them I will need to send to US for a replacement focusing screen as I accidentally cleaned it with isothophyl alchohol and "bye bye" screen.

KEH occasionally gets a *ist film body. IIRC the last one I saw there was priced around $200.
