It was shipped yesterday, and estimated delivery in 7-10 days.

I can't wait for it to come. I've shot digital for some time now, but never felt content with shooting family and friends snaps digitally. I've always missed the sending the negative for developing, and being able to put the photos in albums when they get back.

I've only read good things about the 35 SP. The metering is supposed to "take a little longer", but that is part of the fun shooting manual! The one I'm getting is supposed to be in a very nice shape. Meter tested. Shutter film tested. Lens is said to be mint. The pictures showed no hint of obvious damage. There's a store close to where I live where I can buy mercury-free air-zink 1.35V batteries and films. The blacks are quite rare as well, so should I, Gods forbid, wish to sell it, I'm sure I'd be able to sell it without much (financial) loss.
