I really really need one that zooms, atleast 10x, I don't think switching out lens left and right is practical for the kind of picture taking I want to do. I'd like the usual LCD screen and saving via compactflash, as I already have a 2GB Extreme III card I use on my audio recorder. Also, I'd like to know how big of a difference it would be, between a camera in this price range and one in the $1,000-$2,000 range. Assuming I have an eye for taking good pictures, how much of a disadvantage would I be at? 50%? 10%? 5%? I really need one, but I cant spend more money then that. But If I'm going to be completely void of taking good decent pictures without perfect lighting conditions with this thing, I dont think I'd want to spend any money if the cameras the one that is incapable, not the man. Thank you.
