Re:Seven-day photographic trip in Kenya with X-S1

Thanks for the info Paul.  Great links too.  I'm sure the XS1 would do fine.  I'm going to try and have a play with one as soon as I can.  It's certainly a camera I would get use out of after the trip, and a camera I can let my son if he decides to study photography at school.

I think zoom reach is the key deciding factor here so it's either the XS1 or APS-C SLR.  Already have the D80 which  I could use, or sell it to put towards D7000.   The difference between ~500mm with TC & crop factor and the 600mm  of the XS1 is minimal really.  If only Nikon would have released the D400.......ahhh I can dream.

Thanks for everybody's help, I'll let you know what I decide and post a link to the pictures when I taken them!
