Best option to "downsize" from Nikond40 dslr w/zoom?
Jun 19, 2013

Okay, I might be crazy and this may not even possible -- hence my question here. I love my NikonD40 and I have the 55-200mm lens. I like nature photography. But find I tend to HATE lugging my whole kit bag, often don't end up needing both lenses, or really need the giant zoom lenses (for thousands of dollars) to "get that shot".

So -- thinking of downsizing but don't want to totally lose the ability of good, strong zoom comparable to the nikon lens or the image quality. Does that even exist for around $600?? Was looking at the Fujifilm X20 and similar. Am concerned regarding sensor size. Culling through all the reviews is daunting. Wondering if someone could tell me what to look at, or to forget it cuz a more compact camera w/ similar results doesn't exist.

Thanks! :))
