I started a thread called 3x and 30x zoom camera.

In this thread I'm hoping to find out what zoom lens people on trips overseas and on tours found useful that covered most subjects.

I'm thinking that a 10x zoom should cover most subjects and I'd only need a 30x zoom if I had something at a great distance to photograph and then at 30x the quality may not be that great as there can be distortion due to the hot air.

I welcome your comments thanks.

I want a minimum of 600mm-EFL but also OFTEN use my FZ-1000 at 3200mm-EFL.

Anything less is now unacceptable to me. (Call me SPOILED.)

Hi PhotoTech2.

Out of interest what do you photograph with a zoom that big?

I posted some examples above ... some good some just TESTS that I did only a WEEK after I got the camera.
