I've had one of these cameras from new, use it all the time and have had no problems with it. It has its quirks, flash default is auto so you have to set it to off, and the aperture stays open relative to shutter speed longer than most people would prefer, but it's still a very capable compact camera if you work within its limits. The MjuII is among the cheapest high quality lens compact cameras on the market today, and delivers images that compete with much more expensive cameras.
