My second serious camera was also an X-570. When I got it, I thought it had been designed for me. It had everything I needed, and nothing I didn't need. It was my constant companion until I dropped it on a hike in 2001. The pentaprism housing was damaged, and the meter no longer worked. The repairs would have cost more than what I paid for the camera when I first bought it for $169 in 1983. It's retired now, but I still take it out and look through the view finder now and then.

I remember the moment you took that photo in my front yard. I have never tried hard to grow roses, and was lucky to have that one. Great first shot for a rank amateur.
