We share the infatuation with this little powerhouse - it's no longer competitive, but a fine camera nonetheless; I won't let got of mine any time soon, though I have to admit I hardly use it these days.
Well captured and seriously rewarding results, but they also show the sensor's limits in the second image: The hard yellow halo is typical (it can also be orange or purple - but always bright and solid). Very little in the way of flare, though - the lens is still a very nice performer (in all respects but distortion at the wide end, that is).
Once more, very nice performance; I especially like the colours this little old CCD is capable of. Thanks for sharing.
