  • While there are some drawbacks that is well outweighed by the brilliant zoom and clear photos even when enlarged…
  • You get a fantastic zoom for such a compact camera…
  • With very limited zoom options…
    JMG (Amazon) - October 2014
  • This is useful for set-ups with differential focus or super macro settings…
  • The zoom is impressive, though of course at full stretch it is very difficult to hold steady enough to shoot without blur particularly in low lot…
