I just got my camera in the mail. Its a sharp vu-ax1. i love it. the picture is amazing!!!! they retail for 850. and they are no longer made. when they first came out, they were going on ebay for 1200 because sharp didnt release enough of them. well i got mine on ebay from this guy who owns a camera shop, and needed to get rid of a lot of stuff. so he put it on ebay. there was a buy it now for 175. so i emailed him all my questions and i was sold. i also bought a .38 fisheye for it and i love it! i cant wait to take this to utah with me. i had a zr500 and i sold that on ebay for 175. so really, i got it for free. i just had to by the fisheye.
