Every time I find myself hankering for a new "toy" (translation: camera) I take out one of my golden oldies and start shooting with it. Of all of them, I cherish the DSC F717 the most because it makes the greatest images. The lens is spectacular. This was taken handheld in my laundry room, with light filtering through closed blinds with Auto ISO, which I have never used with this camera. Something special about the older digicams that weren't yet in the megapixel race.
