When I purchased this camera new, it was my first auto-focus camera. Took some getting used to from my old Nikkormat EL.

This camera served me for many years and it breaks my heart that digital is becoming so prevalant.

I don't have any real experience to judge this effectively, The camera produces sharp clear pictures and has great shutter speed. As for what I don't like, The lenses are noisy and slow to focus, sometimes better to focus manualy.

when shooting on auto in low light it tends to not know what to focus on.

Only got my N808 in January, but have taken it to Italy, Texas and many places here in the Philadelphia area along with my N80 and have had excellent photos from both. I just wish I had the data back for the 8008.
