Hi all, I'm new to photography and looking to buy a good camera to start with, without getting to complicated and for an all-round use. Maybe later on I'll get more serious. Looking into these very similar models, I'm looking for some advice... NIKON COOLPIX P90 or OLYMPUS SP-590 UZ ??? I am an airline pilot, and I want to be able to take some great pics, air-2-air and air-2-ground. Therefore the large optical zoom needed. Also I need something relatively compact, user friendly and quick to set up when I get a good view out of the cockpit. Otherwise I enjoy taking pics when travelling, sailing, etc. Ranging from pictoresque and panoramic views of towns to beaches and sunsets. Nothing to expensive as this is only a hobby. I've found the Nikon for 346 euros and the Olmpus one for 307. All together dont want to spend more then 400 euros with memory cards and carry cases. Thanks all in advance, looking forward for any sugestions and your advice.
