I Love This Camera

Luckychit, Amazon
29 August 2012
  • Summary: I have owned several of these cameras and love them. They take wonderful pictures. The plus to this camera is the Carl Zeiss lens and the ability to take close-up pictures. The camera I recently purchased is in perfect working condition and I am very happy to receive it. Thank you for your quick shipment and nice packing. I appreciate sellers such as yourself. Thank you.

Please Sony, make it again!

Alison, Amazon

  • Summary: Large Carl Zeiss lens, rotating camera back, LCD screen & viewfinder, Macro to 1CM, 10X zoom, well balanced, controls are smartly placed and easy to use by feel, excellent laser grid for low light aiming, great battery life, newer very high capacity memory cards can take over a thousand photos. Why was this camera discontinued? I use mine professionally daily and shoot an average of 300 photos per day. I would like to buy a back up but can't find comparable camera.

f717 is a classic

jimbo "ifixaudio", Amazon
11 March 2010
  • Summary: I bought my first f717 new in 2002. I shot tens of thousands of photos all around the world before it essentially pooped out. I liked it so much that I bought a second. And a few years later, a third. The ergonomics of this camera are unparalleled by any modern (2010) camera I am aware of. Holding it by the lens, you can quickly twist the body up or down to get candid people shots (lens up) or above a crowd (lens down). Battery life is superb.

Sony Does Free Repair on White Fog!

Photo Enthusiast, Amazon
23 March 2007
  • Summary: After almost 4 years of use, I had the white fog too. I was concerned after reading some of the reviews that I would have to pay for a repair. I am happy to report that Sony is taking care of all shipping and repair costs! If anyone is having the white fog problem, go to Sony's website and call their customer service number. It only took me 10 mintues to get it taken care of! This has been a fantastic camera. I only gave it 4 stars because it is a little bulky to carry.
