    I have a canonet 28 that I was given on my 16th birthday. While I have used
    other cameras this has over the years been a personal favorite. Would
    anyone dare to compare the optics of my little canonet 28 with the optics
    of todays point and shoot camereas? Apart from the autofocus that I neither
    want or need, are todays lenses any better? While I would love to run
    around with my A-1 or F1, (YES I LOVE MY OLDER CANONS), this is not always
    possible. My cute little Canonet never fails me.

  2. Autofocus does NOT influence the optical quality of a lens.

    If I want a really good enlarged print, then I use an antique Rolleicord DLR
    (Double Lens Reflex). Fully and exclusively manual settings, no autofocus, no
    metering, no auto-nothing.

    But then I need a separate handheld lightmeter with it ...

  3. I will put up either a Olympus XA, or the newer Stylus Epic. Both have a 35mm
    f2.8 Zuiko lens that is hard to beat. I have owned both and wore out the XA.

    yeah the stylus epic comes highly recommended if your canonet ever bites the
    dust
    or if you can't stand AF find a canonet GIII 17 QL - now that's sharp :)
