It is considerably sharper than most of my Leica R zoom lenses and has less pincushion distortion at the tele end. The only downside is that it is quite a slow lens but the camera mates very well with Kodak Ultramax The slow lens has the benefit of not putting the multi point autofocus under much strain.
The only problem is that when I left my French house last October, I hid it away somewhere and now I cannot for the life of me, remember where I put it. It will turn up at some point.

And this one just seems to play into the pleasingly weird side of things. Until a few years ago, the AGAT 18k was always in my pocket. But as much as I liked that camera and its lens, the plastic construction always made me a bit nervous about whether or not it would fall apart in my hands.

After using both a while, I like the feel of the Canon much better. It is quite handy and fun. I particularly like the photo of what I assume is your significant other looking bemusedly at your use of such a silly camera when we have perfectly good smartphones available.
I think it would pair nicely with the leading image of you with the camera to your eye. I was going to buy one of these. You got some pretty good shots out of it. Nicely written piece, good review. Next up the Aiborg? William, the Aiborg has a surprisingly good lens.
