I am thinking about buying a Kodak Z712 IS P&S camera to add a superzoom P&S to my collection. I can get one new for about $150 bux. It looks like a good enough camera to let me really explore the "what you can do for $150" type photography, with a superzoom lens. Image quality is OK (if a bit softer than say my 70-200 f/2.8 VR ) and as long as I keep the ISO at 100 or 64 they don't seem to puke TOO badly. I want a superzoom for my next "El Cheapo" camera because it will let me shoot the kinds of things that I shoot (basically I shoot long-range stuff a lot). This D300 and all these fancy fast lenses are cool and all, but sometimes I fell like I need to expand my photography in different directions, by limiting the technical end of it. How many times do we here "man, you must have a really nice camera..." and I love to reply "Nah, I took it with a $200 point and shoot from WallyWorld". Most folks, I suppose, will think I am nuts for wanting to shoot with a P&S instead of a fully tricked out pro/prosumer DSLR rig, and I may be. I also would like a Powershot S5 IS too, but they cost $300+ and that starts to move more into the "nice camera" sort of area. Am I nuts?
