Hey Guys, Pretty sure there are a couple of Camera guys on here, so here is my situation: I have a Nikon Coolpix compact(ish) camera. Takes great piccys a lot of the time, and actually takes AA batteries (I like that! :) ), but has some limitations: Sometimes I cant zoom in or out far enough (obviously not for the same picture) and I cant focus the dam thing manually! (grrrrrrrrrrr).
So if I want to get a SLR that will do better, what do I need to look at/ consider/ pay?
The cool pix suggests that the zoom range is 22 - 600 mm (and I have no idea if that includes the 1.5 correction factor thingy that the guy at the shop was talking about with SLR lenses).
I have heard that there is not enough difference between the Cannon and the Nikons, but they all try to sell you Cannon (?!)
Thanks Guys, Todd
