This model is even better than the previous model.

It's well built, reliable, takes excellent photos, has some of the best quality lenses you can buy, and are easy to use.

I have never had a bad photo with this camera. I wish Kyocera was making DSLR's today under the Yashica and Contax names.

I like this model better than the 230-af.

They guy who gave it a bad review is just repeating garbage and nonsense.

One of the the ill-fated 200-series line of Kyocera/Yashica AF 35mm SLR cameras. These cameras were introduced by Kyocera after its purchase of Yashica, and seem plagued by shutter and other malfunctions (see ebay). The Yashica AF lens line is tiny and of only average optical quality, and Kyocera was forced to introduce a 1.6 teleconverter adapter so buyers could use the much better, older Yashica ML manual-focus lenses.

More complicated and more-lightly built than prior manual-focus Yashica bodies, these cameras were uncompetitively priced as well, and the new AF camera line soon withered and died. The lack of parts is a serious disadvantage for someone contemplating a used body.
