At first my reaction was "this guy is lazy". Then I realized that a first time DSLR buyer would expectpowered zoom because all P&S and prosumer cameras havepowered zooms, and one gets used to the convenience. None of my SLR's ever had powered zoomsbut all my non-DSLR's have it, and I've always expected that, but a newbie wouldn't know. In hindsight, you should have handled a DSLR in a camera shop, but your assumption of powered zoom is understandable.
