I am expecting UPS to deliver my TL500 tomorrow & I can hardly wait! I have read everything at DPReview & various reviews & most of the owners manual. I had purchased a Nikon S8100 on sale, but returned it the next day. I really wanted a nice compact so I will have a decent camera when my D200 kit is at home, but can't afford one of the large sensor offerings right now. I had hoped that the Nikon would work out & although it is a nice camera, it didn't seem much different that my Canon S1000. It had more features, but it was still a P&S with no manual control. Enter the Samsung TL500 at $332 USD delivered. I am just now reading all I can on this forum & planning my weekend shooting with great anticipation. It will be interesting to see if I am tempted to leave the D200 at home next time I go out of town. Thank you all for your participation in this forum & I look forward to contributing soon. Oh, BTW I have a pretty good idea, but can someone please give me the correct pronunciation of Schneider - Kreuznach? I have to know before anyone asks me!
