Serious Compacts For Life

Its not that I don't like the P610, I just don't like it for everything. Low light? Forget it Long zoom? Excellent. ...
I definitely get that mindset. It is a matter of right tool for right job. Once you accept that one camera does not fit all needs, which most of us have, the choices are a bit easier.
The other big benefit of a superzoom vs a long lens is that with the SZ you are just carrying one camera. It can do wide, to a point, video, snaps of any kind. If I have a big zoom on a DSLR I either need to carry another lens or another camera. Sometimes that is perfectly fine with me, but many times I favor simplicity and versatility over most everything else.
