    I found a Nikon Point and Shoot camera review at google which it was describing a extremelly cheap nikon point and shoot camera with sonnar copy.
    There was heavy vignetting at the pictures but colors and contrast and sharpness reminds me my torturing Rollei 35 S.

    Can you help remind me the camera ? It was black and plastic.

    Thank you ,

    Umut

    Mike ,

    I think it was totally black but I am not sure now. The picture was so small and dark .
    Does it have a Sonnar copy ?

    Any other suggestion ?

    I have owned one of these for a couple of years but I have not tried it out yet. I think I will soon.

    I bought it from classifieds with help of Chris.
    I have a Rollei 35S with Sonnar 2.8 40mm and its a amazing lens. But as I said before , Its like Leica and best performance delivered not at mid day I guess. For to get real colors or tones you have to darken the image.
    This is my taste , I love strong colors , shadow performance and smooth degradation at walls or sky.
    As RidingWay - I think his name comes from excellent surf waves- indicated , I love the sunset colors of the MtFuji.
    I bought this Sonnar Nikon as a helping hand to its brother.
    But Elmar is a must and I will try to buy oldest Leica I could find this summer.
    I used Leicas for 8 years and using them and recording people - now lacks in photography I guess-
    is a soo much satisfying experience.

    Thank you for all support.
