Just bought a DSC-F717 (used but mint) on ebay for $355.00. I think it was a great buy. I've heard good things about the F717 .....some like it better than the F828 which I owned but sold. No memory stick included but I have plenty of them and also have the F32X flash that I kept when I sold the F828 and use on my V3. Bottom line I can always get my money back if I don't like....maybe a little extra because I see F717's selling on ebay for $500.00 plus.:D

Absolutely!:cool:I still love the F717 as much as the day I got it almost two years ago. The V3 is faster for shot to shot times and focusing, but the f2.0-f2.4 lens on the F717 has given me much better results for night shots and low light photography, especially using the 5x optical zoom.

I have been using the F717 for almost 2 years now and love it. It is very good in low light situations and motion shots are great. I take pictures at Sea World Florida a couple time a month. I am thrilled with the results. I have the Sony telephoto lens also (VCL HGD 1758) also. The clarity is very good on that also. I am sure you will be pleased and what a great deal you got!

Happy shooting!
