P510 -How far is a 41.86X optical zoom?

As someone put here their first samples at W and T end there was a reply that the examples would be very modest... !

So I tried also the power of the camera biggest zoom in some "normal" conditions (for me that meaning not airliners at cruising conditions ) and here are the results for you to judge:

1. In the tricky light just before the sunset:

if you take a look just the left of the small metal box tied on the lighting pole, you see far away a car parked near a house, reflecting the sunlight; and here is the car, an Opel Tigra (you can read the brand on it!):

2. Flowers in our backyard in a cloudy, but not overcasted day:


3. Two pigeons in the neighborhood, the same day:

At right of the big metal box you see in the grass a black speck and just at its left a gray one, and here are the specks:

Thank you for watching,
