I saw it at a amateur photographer test years ago and color spectrum was impressive . Red colors separated and eye catching very successfully , 6X17 format is dream format , there is no vignetting , distortion or anything wrong at corners and very sexy camera. I saw it with a tourist at istanbul and check it. Its a very very good camera , excellent , if you think you might pay 450 dollars for a 35mm russian panorama camera , dont miss it. I loved Fuji cameras with these cameras and my dream camera , run run , dont waste time David.
