I use a Tamron 70/300 lense on my Nikon and you can switch it from Zoom to Macro, I've never had any problems with it.

I've used that lens too - no major concerns I can recall.

I've got a TZ10, which is a compact camera from a couple of years ago. Virtually every photo I've ever posted on here (and most I post anywhere else too!) has been taken with it, and I find it to be perfectly acceptable for most applications. I believe the bridge cameras similar to this have even more manual control, which would help sometimes in certain circumstances I reckon.

Sounds like a damn good price for that. Let us know how it goes :)

Myself, I am damn near paralysed by indecision regarding what to do camera-wise. I don't want to jinx things, but my DSLR isn't getting any younger - I'm not that bothered about it being surpassed in some ways, as it's still as damn good a wee camera as it ever was, but they don't live forever...

It's not quite clear where the money's actually going to come from :? Yet, I'm lining up my options beforehand (and perhaps trying an experiment in wish fulfillment). Basically, do I stick with Pentax (as my current one has served me very well), or sell various body parts in hope of being able to afford a 5D Mark III once the price comes down a bit more? The added complication is that I am frankly quite desperate to get my grubby mitts on a Fuji X100s, as I spend a lot of time with a fixed focal length lens anyway, and that camera is just beguiling.

This is all kind of academic right now, mind you...
