Got mine at PC show in June @Sgd 769 bundled with 128MB SD card ,bag,Nimh Battery + Charger,card reader.
The tube adapter supplied as standard can take 52mm filters and tele/wide converter lenses.this single piece of accessories is one of the most useful.
The speed of focussing and continous mode is amazing and the best part is that the LCD/EVF screen does not freeze or blackout during continous mode.
This is the only 10X camera in the market now that has this feature.
Build quality is excellent and features/menus/button are very easy to use even for first timer.
The dayfine LCD/EVF is very sharp and bright and I think one of the best.
Compared it to Minolta Z2 and the Kyocera's easily beats it.

Was on the verge o getting Z2 when the M410R advert caughtv my eye.Compared the specs and feelibg it at PC show swung my decision for the
M410R. NO REGRETS thus far !

Thanks.

The camera is actually lighter and smaller in real life.Ergonomics is excellent.
I m still tyring to utilise all the tools/options for better picture quality eg Histogram(yes before and after shot !),Wide.centre and spot metering.
There is a focus lock beep and green spot that accompanies succesful focus lock(audio visual).

Check out the following thread for photos samples

I did read the reviews at stevedigi.com but its abit too brief... n the sample photos is well... ok to me...i did compare it with with Canon IS ... seems like canon;s colour is more vivid n stronge..M410R's kind of more soft...yeah?

Is the auto focus very fast? i know the Z2 is fast...not sure abt the M410R...

Used it for 3 weeks b4 selling.

Only complaint about this camera is the heavy power consumption. Got at best about 120 shots on a set of 2100 mah batteries.
