Hi everyone, hope someone can help me out. I know theres not much in the way of reviews for the nikon 5900/7900 but its the 7900 or the olympus c70. I like the more compact size of the Nikon and have owned Nikon slr cameras in the past but i really like the idea of the 5xoptical zoom on the olympus. Do i need the zoom range or will the fact that i have 7 megapixels to play with allow me to enlarge my subject on the computer without to much loss of quality.:?

Any thoughts would be greatfully appreciated.

P.s. The other reason i am looking at these 2 are there compact size as i want to use it for travel:-)

Hi: Both are good cameras, you will get good results from either.

I reccommend the Oly. More compact, better lens (38-190 vs the Nikon's 38-114), easier to pack and carry for travel. Excellent photographs. (The owners of the C7000 are very positive on the camera.)

I travel frequently, and even though I have 4 digicams, I usually grab the smaller for ease of travel.

Anyway, good l;uck with your choice.
