Want to shoot ballet and gymnastics for grandchildren
Mar 28, 2012

I have been using a Panasonic TZ3, I like the superzoom and I can carry it in a pocket, but the problem is my grandchildren are doing dance and ballet and gymnastics. So I wind up taking pictures in available light indoors using zoom at about 250-300. And the noise is awful. I was therefore thinking of upgrading to a T21 with the two lenses, Costco has a nice price 779

Should I consider a long zoom in addition to the kit 18-55 and 55-250, or perhaps other lenses.

I am not doing this professionally so a $2000 lens is probably not going to happen.
(note also looking at the Nikon 3100/5100)
I worked on the IBM 650 (tubes)

Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ3 Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T2
