Take a look at these images. In summary in good light I fine the images amazing and in bad light a little disappointing. It definitely takes time to learn the controls and fine points even if you have had a coolpix before. It is easy to get blur so think about a light tripod, monopod, or friendly wall.

Can you write me or post your findings about the Olympus 300? I am looking for an intermediary camera between my D70 and the 7900 with a good telephoto and any suggestions would be appreciated.

What I am hoping for is:

1. an extensible LCD or equivalent so I can take waist level shots

2. at least a 10x telephoto and it starting at the equivalent of 28mm (wide angle)

3. image stabilization

4. good optics for sharp pictures with great color saturation

Please advise me... any suggestions appreciated.

By the way I am finding that at dusk and on overcast days it is a good idea to use a tripod or "wall" to make my pictures nice and sharp with the 7900

Hand up. I've got one too, largely based on your previous comments about it TD.

It is a great camera, stunning photos - better than my old Canon film SLR when printed well, and I was very sceptical before buynig it. I was amazed.

Low light can be handled. What Ioften do,is to jam the camera against a wall or post and press the body down hard whilst taking a picture. This works well when you haven't got a tripod to hand. But press the case hard and preferably used delayed shutter release to prevent any extra forces that might move it.

One of the problems is the autofocusing in low light if the focus point is low contrast, so sometimes it will not lock. Get around this bymoving the camera until there is a high contrast shape in the focus frame at about the same distance away- like the edge of a wall or a light, half hold the shutter release and reframe the image.

I'd like manual but you can't have everything and there are ways around it.
