    My friend bought a J1 with the two zoom kit for her Galapagos trip on my advice. Since my E-M5 is in for repairs, she suggested I take the J1 to Disneyworld for my upcoming trip this Thursday to test it out. Daytime stuff should be pro forma, but I will have an opportunity for long shots of animals at the Animal Kingdom (obviously of interest to her) and the many great night shots. Any suggestions for settings or things to watch for? I plan to avoid liking it too much.:redface:

    J1, kit zooms, night shots... not so fab. Doable, but you need really good light sources. Daytime shots are a no brainer, its brilliant for daytime.

    Good to know. Her primary interest will be daytime tele shots so night is not critical. I'll also have my eos m and xf1.
