I HAVE PICKED UP THIS UNUSED BRAND NEW MZ3 FOR 40.00POUNDS IN DEC 2006 !!!! IT WAS BOXED WITH JAPANESE MANUAL AND REALLY A BRAND NEW, UNUSED !!
GREAT BARGAIN AND I LIKE THIS SLR BECAUSE IT IS AN EXCELLENT SLR TO START WITH. IT HAS ALMOST EVERYTHING WHICH STARTER NEEDS. PERHAPS IT IS A LITTLE PLASTICKY BUT THE COLOUR RESULTS ARE VERY GOOD. I HAVE SO FAR USED KODAK ASA200, 400 AND THEY BOTH CAME OUT CLEAN AND SHARP IMAGES. I HAVE BEEN BUYING FILMS FROM EBAY CHEAPLY WITH 6-12 MONTHS LIFE LEFT AND STILL RESULTS ARE EXCELLENT. IT MAY BE FAR BETTER THAN SOME UNDER 5 MIL CHEAP DIGITAL CAMERAS !! SO FAR I HAVE COVERED LANDSCAPE, BUILDINGS, PORTRAITS, NIGHT SHOTS AT VERY SLOW SHUTTER SPEEDS. NO PROBLEMS AT ALL!! IF YOU ARE SERIOUS ABOUT PHOTOGRAPHY, ALWAYS START FROM THE BASIC AND LEARN SLR FROM 35mm FILMS!!
I INTEND TO KEEP THIS CAMERA FOR AT LEAST 12 MONTHS THEN PERHAPS MOVE ONTO NIKON D80.
