Re: Superzoom, manual focus, < $600 recommendation?

Try Olympus SLR, such as the e-510/520 + 70 - 300mm lens (140 - 600mm equivelent). When we talk about zoom, we have to have a base line to begin with.

Example, the 70 - 300 mm Olymps lens is only 4.2x, but it has more than twice the power of a 24 - 250mm (10.4x) lens in terms of bringing th esubject closer, which is basically why people look for zoom lens ...
