I would ask a question of the assembled group. Up till recently, I’ve been considering a high end automatic digital to augment my photography activities. Particularly, I’ve been leaning heavily towards the Konica-Minolta Z5 (12x optical zoom & 4x digital). I’ve also looked at the Canon 2s 2x. I’d be interested in opinions on these or other cameras.
