    WTS: $450+$15 shipping and insurance. FTF in ATL Georgia area.

    I'm selling my 717 because I've moved to a digital SLR.

    Camera is in mint condition, no scratches or marks on the body.

    I purchased this camera new in October of 2002.

    Camera includes the following extras:

    Hoya 58mm HMC circular polarizer
    Hoya 58mm HMC Super UV(0) filter
    Generic 58mm lens hood
    Lowepro nylon case
    128meg memory stick

    This model camera is capable of a hell of a lot. In infrared mode it can shoot in pitch darkness, among other things. I have a lot of sample photos.

    This camera is still (in my opinion) king of the non-SLR digital cameras, despite being a 2 year old design. Other cameras may now shoot higher resolutions, but they don't have all the features and balance of this one. Even Sony's successor to the 717, the 828, doesn't take as good a photo as the 717 does.

    Full review, all specs, more info than I could ever fit in this listing can be found here:

    Do you have any use for a good 35mm film camera? If so, I have a Canon AF EOS Elan IIe with a Tamron 28-80 zoom lens that I'd trade for your Sony digital camera.

    Don't know why my other post was deleted, but I was just offering a user opinion on this model camera. I think it is great and this is a great deal.

    MODS, if I can't make this post, please shoot me an email and explain why!

    jgun - that was weird. I thought maybe I imagined that post or something because I saw it was gone today. Thanks for the testimony on what a good camera it is, regardless.
