    My advice would be don't bother - never heard of the company and that usually isn't a good sign. Stick with a well known brand like Canon, Nikon, Olympus, Sony, Fuji, Konica Minolta and the like. Spend a bit extra and you'll actually get better value for money.

    Hi Folks,
    I'm gonna buy one in a couple of weeks to do just that.
    Lumicron LDC-660s ( http://www.lumicron.net/P_SpecDetail/LDC660S.html ) from Tescos, I'll give it a whirl and see. Build quality seems pretty good and it's a nice sized camera, spec looks ok too. I own a fuji finepix 602z and a canon powershot a85 which are both nice cameras but I'd like something smaller to cart around with me at all times.
    If I'm not happy I'll take it back within the 28 days and get a refund. I'll let you know what it's like.


    Jon.

    cant argue with the price as long as that screen holds up. Might find they are made my another manufacturer anyway. Seen a few cameres sharing bodies before
    who'd have thought Centon (jessops exclusive brand) used the same body and some internals as a Contax? well its true :p

    That Lumicron 660s will have to remain a mystery for a while................
