Since some folks are talking about FZ1000, here's an example of what a superzoom can do. Eagle robs

    This morning, water was pouring over the dam on the north side of Peebles Island near Troy NY.


    Herons were waiting below the dam.


    One of them caught a fish.


    A bald eagle frightened the heron off the fish.


    Considered his options for a moment.


    and flew off with his ill-gotten gains.


    All shot with an FZ200. Nothing up my sleeves, never at any time did I change lenses . . .

    Cheers, Jock

    Wow, Jock - that's an impressive reach! How wonderful for you to see the Bald Eagle in action and be able to photograph him! Not that I don't admire the Great Blue Heron. I keep thinking about getting a camera with interchangeable lenses...or maybe one of these.
