    image quality not so good

    got iso limitations, got maximum aperture limitations

    they won't worry about your images

    well, is equiv angle of view but not the actual focal length... actual should be somewhere ard 70mm only, so basically it still sit nicely under the <= 200mm rules...

    soon a casio P&S can shoot 60fps @ 6MP. Sure can get something in that 1 or 2 secs.

    Anyway, what do they mean by 200mm? After 1.6 crop sensor or as indicated in the lens?

    Woo, that's not too bad. 200mm on a 1.6x crop sensor camera would be 320mm. But, I am not very happy with the tripod rule. No tripod, monopod (with 3 legs) lor!

    With a olympus dSLR and a 200mm lens, it would be 400mm!

    All telephoto camera lenses must have a focal strength of greater than 200mm.
    If this is not a typo, cannot use any lens less than 200mm leh.
