Re: stuck in the dark

Depends on what you call modestly priced. I think a DSLR with a 1.5 crop factor (450mm equivalent) does well with a 55-300 or 70-300mm lens for wildlife.

I also own an Oly E-620 with a 70-300 lens that has a 600mm equivalent, same as the FZ200, but with a larger sensor. That combo. cost me about $800, if I remember correctly. Unfortunately, Oly no longer makes small DSLR's like the 620.
