    It's not a Nikon P510, Canon SX50, Fuji HS50EXR.

    It's also not a Panny LX7 nor a Pentax K-01. :wink:

    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.

    Yeats,

    I vote for FZ200.

    Cheers, Jock

    FZ200's too short for my usage. :frown: 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.

    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.

    Just a quick aside from the guessing game to say how great it is to see you Chris!:friends: 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! :biggrin:

    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.:th_salute:

    Your technique is better than mine. 300-400 hand held even w/ IS for me.. 600 when I get lucky. Otherwise monopod for me..
