Just bought a T Zoom, I'm quite disappointed with the built. Although Aluminium is used for the front case, the overall built loose out the the previous T5 I own. The back flip door doesn't close as tight as T5. Could it be that it's made in China and T5 is made in Japan? The focusing has improve thought, at least not so much of out of focus like T5. T5 has the tendency to out of focus especially in low lighting places. T Zoom's zooming ability doesn't perform as fast as other Yashica cameras, my advise is not to zoom too much or you'll miss some good shots.
