I'm now looking for a Point-n-Shoot camera to keep in my briefcase / car to carry around all the time. What would you suggest? My preference would be more telephoto reach then wide angle.
you may consider the new panasonic tz1. it's got 10x zoom and it's pretty lightweight to be carrying it in your coat pocket or something.

Thanks for reminder of the portability of D50 itself!

I would say the D50 w/ kit lense Nikkor 18~55mm is already quite portable:

600g + 200g = 800g.

And possible to be regarded as an P&S dslr.


But with my 2nd lens, Tamron 18~200mm (400g)adding up to 1kg, I begin to feel the loading.

Fuji F11 would be my choice of portable "pocket" camera, simply because it has good noise characteristics.

My D50 is now 'glued' to the Nikkor-Micro 60mm, D200 to Nikkor 80-400VR. Every time I pick up the D50 I felt that it's a very light compact camera. I love my D50 even more. I was thinking of the 18-55 but I was spoiled by the macro capability of the 60mm super lens.
