I am looking closely at this and other similar options. I have been through a number of interchangeable lens cameras including a D90 and find that they do not suit me. I am a hobbyist photog and the cost of REALLY good zooms for all other interchangeables seems out of my range. Also, I do a lot of hiking and biking, so the weight is an issue.
My newest idea is to possibly buy two cameras - one of them very compact, like the new Sony RX, and then a super-zoom. But the zoom camera must have a decent lens! I don't really need 20X.....even 12X would do.

I was spoiled 12 years ago when I bought the Sony F-707. It had a lens which was much better than anything I have had since! I am looking for something which is a more modern version of that!

Any suggestions? Is this one worth looking at for my long work (hawks, sailboats, etc.)? My alternative is to buy a M 4/3 or Sony Nex, but even those lenses don't get high reviews!
