Re: Why not the 300 or 60-250?

Why not the DA300 f4? Not WR but a really nice 300 and they go for about 1200
Also the 60-250 is a very good lense... at 1200 If you want a zoom

As far as a canoe goes... I would use a long zoom P&S like the canon sx50 or panny FZ200... (fuji has a nice one too...
I would never risk a turn over in a canoe with a bag full of lenses and a WR camera... but I am poor and a chicken.

Hi, Britney (?),

In a canoe, indeed, the superzoom is a more convenient sized camera. And, it's less expensive in case of mishap in a canoe.

The DA*300 is WR, as written in the next reply.

The DA*60-250 would be too heavy and too short for my purposes.
