How much zoom?
By bug77 on 1/30/2013 6:45:29 AM , Rating: 2
I wonder how much zoom is usable hand held? I know I'm not getting perfect results each time at 300mm holding my DSLR, but I wonder what's the limit on a compact.
Also, I'm waiting for samples from those BSI sensors (though I suspect they don't go nowhere near the advertised 16/18MP, but that's an old story already).
