Here is my attempt using a KM 5D with a Tamron 70 - 300 mm (105 - 450 mm equiv).

What do you think?

exposure looks about right, but the image lacks clarity. i assume you were using a tripod... what f-stop were you at? moon shots like this are best at smaller apertures, with shutter speeds in the 1/125-1/250 range.

I went for the Konica Minolta 5D as I liked the good relults at higher ISOs and the built in image stab. Also felt better in my hands. I think that the sharpness is due to the Tamron 70-300 which is not great at full zoom. Need to get a better lens for longer zooms really. Budget is the main issue.

budget is one reason i bought a Panasonic FZ20. i get a 35-430mm equivalent lens, f2.8 through the zoom range, Leica optics, and superb clarity. it's "only" 5MP, but up through 11x14, the pics it takes are as good as any i ever got with my film SLR. it lacks the dynamic range of a DSLR, and hasn't the ISO capability for low light, but the image stabilizer helps compensate for that. best of all, i got it for $450...

here's a moon shoti tooklast summer - 12x zoom @ f8, 1/125, ISO 100, shot froma tripod in my backyard...
