Re: Why is there no love for the HX300..?

I think it's because it's only claim to fame is the zoom range, but the rest of the features are consumer oriented, not "pro".  That, and the long lens is slow, so to people who buy based on capability, the only + is the long range. It's not small like a point n shoot, but doesn't function like a DSLR.  The lens isn't particularly wide either. So, it's going to appeal to very casual shooters, who probably have kids in soccer. Or people like my buddy, who likes to play paparazzi with his. He can zoom right in on cops abusing people from a block away.
