I recently bought a Yashica T Zoom compact point-and-shoot camera, because it has a very fine Carl Zeiss 28-70mm zoom lens.  Here are some sample images from the first two rolls of film that I shot in the first 24 hours.  I post these images here at the request of a fellow member of the Contax discussion forum.
These photos are just snapshots to see how the camera performs fresh out of its box.  Please ignore the technical quality of composition, framing, lighting, and subject matter, because these photos were just quickly taken.  Weather condition for the outdoor shots was overcast.
These scans were done by a Fuji minilab, from Fuji Superia 200 print film for the top four images, and Fuji Press 800 for the bottom four.

Self portrait, at 28mm, camera held at arms length in the back of a moving Hong Kong taxi:

Push the zoom button once, and you get a 40mm focal length:

At 28mm again:

And then zoom in to 70mm:

Sitting on the end of a Taipei hotel bed, at 28mm focal length, with Fuji Press 800 film:

Walking from the hotel to the office, through the back streets of Taipei, push the zoom button twice to get a 55mm focal length:

Three pushes of the zoom button gives a 60mm focal length, just right to catch the teashop owner's son in a bored moment:
