    The Rollei Prego 70 is a nice little P&S. I've used one of these off and on for several years. It has a 2x zoom -- 35mm-70mm. Sharp lens, small boxy body. Good camera.

    My wife had an Olympus P&S. A very sharp lens but a horrible viewfinder -- among the worst that I've had the misfortune to use.

    Years ago, my wife had a Canon Snappy something with a fixed-focus lens. It was a piece of junk.

    The Rollei AFM 35 is an excellent camera although overpriced for what it is (advanced P&S). It's not as costly as the Rollei QZ cameras, which are large cameras with full autoexposure, aperture- or shutter-priority autoexposure or full manual with shutter speeds running from 16 seconds to 1/8,000 (that's right: 1/8,000).

    When it comes to high end, Leica had a number of P&S cameras, as did Kyocera under the Contax name.

    I now remember that the camera my wife lost was a Pentax IQ Zoom, 30-90 as I recall.

    If you look at a picture of the Rollei Prego zooms, and look at pictures of the same-era Samsungs with the same specs, you should see they are identical. FWIW.

    Actually, I got mine pretty cheap 2nd hand: for about 20% of what I'd have paid for a Contax T2 or T3. Less even than I'd have paid for a Yashica T4.

    I have an Olympus Stylus 120 camera with 38-120mm zoom and ED, resumably extra-low dispersion, lens. I haven't used it that much since I bought it but I've been really impressed with the image quality off it. I do second the tendency towards red-eye though but a good lab, even 1 hour, should correct that for you. We do where I work!

    They were probably made in the same factory John, It's what's called "label engineering" It's so they can sell the product with the most prestigious name at a higher price.

    Not forgetting that Samsung bough Rollei a few years ago, 1992, and are partly responsible for asset stripping the name

    I didn't know that Ian, however I do remember stocking Fujica and Nikon video camcorders in my shop that were identical in every way, and the Nikon one was £100 more expensive.

    Sandy:

    I recommend (and still use) the Pentax IQZoom 928. 28-90mm lens!

    http://cgi.ebay.com/PENTAX-IQ-ZOOM-9...3286.m20.l1116

    If you found a used one on Ebay from an individual, it would probably go for $15.

    Taking pictures is easy. Making photographs is hard.
