I was bored and looked around at some camera stuff when I suddenly came across this (in my eyes) ugly „thing“. Ok, try the next link...STOP!...Is that right?

This full automatic point & shooter takes 35mm material from ISO 64 – ISO 1600 and exposes your film through a 2.8/35mm auto focus Carl Zeiss T* Tessar lens, unbelievable, one of the best lenses in this little camera.
