budget was a concern for me too, so I spend 2-3 months to evaluate all the various options (mainly long zoom cameras) before I upgrade from Casio QV2900UX. finally settled on the Fujifilm S602Z Nikon Coolpix 5700 was announced just before my purchase but I find the specs and performance wasn't impressive enough to justify the additional $400 over the S602Z. The $400 could get you a lot of accessories which would increase your photograhy experience more than the what 5700 brings (mainly slighltly higher resolution, longer zoom and flip-out LCD but it also bring slower autofocus, slower burst mode, high battery consumption, lack of focus ring).Originally posted by chenwei
mm... like that huh.... sounds strange
i am planing to buy one also, currently targeting 5700. still waiting my salary... i also feel heart pain but just think of i will regret after buying a cheap one, and once the money out, it will no longer worth that much, so even pain also need to go for higher end...
last time i asked around a new 5700 just $1550 ler... anyone get lower price than this?
Do the sums, don't just go for the brand
