Thanks RotBart and Bee for your kind comments. I have fallen back in love with my P850. I have been thrilled with the results I've gotten with it and the kodak tcon lens. I have used the tcon lens with the P850 and the P880. And frankly I'm happier with the results from the P850. The P880 just doesn't have enough reach - even with the tcon lens. You just can't get close enough with it. But as these pictures show - the kodak tcon is razor sharp. Plus I also got reallly lucky that my subjects allowed me to get surprisingly close to them this particular day. I'm actually trolling ebay now for a spare P850 specifically because of the beautiful results I've been getting using it with the tcon lens. It's really a great combination.
