It's not a Nikon P510, Canon SX50, Fuji HS50EXR.
It's also not a Panny LX7 nor a Pentax K-01.
It's possible we have a dark horse in the superzoom race.
I'll guess the FZ200 because it's the only other superzoom model I know by name.
I vote for FZ200.
FZ200's too short for my usage. Perhaps the FZ300 will sport a f/2.8 - 4.5 1000mm lens?
Serious question, Chris: How do you find superzooms hand held at 1000mm?
So far, all of them are easily enough hand held for wildlife shooting that I'm more concerned about subject movement than I am with camera movement. I'd say that 1/200s shutter is easily doable @ 1000mm while using the EVF.
I'll be sure to bring my current superzoom to our get-together on 5/4!
Fuji X-S1? No, that would be too short. One of the other Fujis then? I know some of them have ridiculously long zooms.
Wrong waterfowl... :tongue:
Sue, you're the WINNER!!!
It's a Fuji SL1000. I've only taken a couple pics with it, but so far I'm impressed. Of the superzooms I've auditioned recently, only the Fuji HS50 handles better.
Nice. Are u shooting hand held for that shot? I was going to guess xs1..
more photos, please.
Just a quick aside from the guessing game to say how great it is to see you Chris! I don't know if you've been "back" for a month or two or what... I'm sorry to say that I have been a bit of a stranger here myself.
Yup. Thank goodness for IS.
It's not been a great day for shooting - dark, cloudy and slightly rainy. But still...

Not bad for ISO 400, IMHO.
Here's the link to the DNG if anybody wants to play:
I know you've been one busy lady... life came crashing down on me for a while, but all's well that (mostly) ends well!
Right, Sandy hit you badly and then it seems we lost touch. I am glad you're AOK and all has mostly been good for you, Chris.
Your technique is better than mine. 300-400 hand held even w/ IS for me.. 600 when I get lucky. Otherwise monopod for me..
I'm tellin' ya, the IS on these superzooms is really something.
