    A brand new A70? The extra cash will be handy as you add the costs of CF, add-on filters and other accessories. If you, you may want to consider used G2/G3s...

    8X zoom? Optical? or combined with digital?

    If optical zoom, there ain't many cameras that can do 8x optical zoom or greater.


    Olympus C730UZ = 3MP, 10X (optical) (newer C740Uz, and C750Uz coming), Flash mount = No

    *Olympus C-2100UZ = 2MP, 10X (optical), flash mount = no

    Panasonic DMC-FZ1 = 2MP, 12X (optical), flash mount = no

    *Casio QV-2900UX = 2MP, 8X (optical), Flash mount = no

    *Canon Pro 90 IS = 2MP, 10X (optical), flash mount = no

    *Minolta DiMAGE 5 = 3MP, 7x (optical), Flash mount = yes (hot shoe)

    '*' denotes Discontinued models

    Going by the 3-4MP and assuming 8X optical zoom requirements, the cam that can fit the specs closest is perhaps the C-730UZ.

    Though the $600-$750 budget will be difficult to get it brand-new. unless the C-740UZ and C-750Uz induce a price drop.



    P.S. I guess these cameras are way off your budget
    Minolta DiMAGE 7i,7Hi = 5MP, 7x (optical), flash mount = yes (hot shoe)

    Nikon Coolpix 5700 = 5MP, 8X (optical), Flash mount = yes (hot shoe)

    can start by going to websites like www.mscolor.com.sg and www.cathayphoto.com.sg and send an e-quote.

    Or drop by Alan Photo @ Sim Lim?
