Man, reading your comment on the Ol' A10, I remembered I still got my Ol' trusty a40 in almost mint condition... I don't use it for general photography anymore though. I bought the lens adaptor and got a tele and widelens for it in the day.


Nowadays is used mainly for stop motion animation. nice little bugger ^_^
