    I like the eye controlled focus (on an Elan IIe and an Elan 7e - both of which I paid less than $50.00 for).

    Of course, until very recently I never had any auto-focus, so take my comment with that in mind.

    I would suggest to Christopher that the differences between all of the cameras listed in Fred's eight camera list are essentially refinements, and therefore the choice of what would be "best" for Christopher is most likely only determinable by Christopher.

    I still have my Canan EOS ElanII that my mom bought for me when I was in high school. It's been beat up, dropped, moved from place to place, and even did a stint in my sisters art classes when she was in high school.

    I bought a battery for it some months ago and turned it on. The electronics work but the shutter goes "kssshhhhhhh CLICK"... Like its severely sticking somewhere. And after a few simultaneous clicks, it just sticks all together.

    I'd like to get it repaired, but I'm afraid that the cost will be way way way more than I'm willing to pay.

    The midrange canon slr's were known for this sticky shutter syndrome. Especially if it sits a season or 3.

    Google it and there may be a quick fix, I'm not sure as all my canons always get plenty of exercise.

    There's a repairman in Sparks NV who specializes in EOS and T90 repair. Last time I had work done it cost me $125, including return post. On the other hand, a functioning Elan IIe can be had for $25. I am not wealthy, but I would rather spend the money than toss the camera and try to find another without problems.

    Edit: I should point out that the $125 buys a complete CLA, including cleaning the shutter and replacing the disintegrating shutter bumper.

    I am beginning to resent being referred to as 'half-fast'.
    Whatever that's supposed to mean.
