Default 5700 or 4500???

Hi there Everybody.
i am new to the forum and to digital photography.

i am currently using a Fujifilm 40i and am really enjoying the quality of the pix, but it seriously lacks an optical zoom lenz.

Nikon is by far my favourite brand name and i am looking to upgrade to either a 5700 or a 4500.

as u can see from my username i collect and breed reptiles so am constantly taking pics of them feeding and chillin.
lots of close ups and lots of outside pics.

my fiance on the other hand loves taking pics of nature and sunsets and that sort of stuff.

what would u gus and gals suggest for me to get.
coolpix 5700 or 4500???

or do i not need such an expensive camera??
the other option i was looking at is the fujifulm 3800(S304).


thanking u in advance for the responses.

Hi,

I just got my 4500 yesterday, and I love it! My animals have been great subjects, especially considering I haven't read the manual yet and am just pushing the shutter button for the sheer thrill of being able to take 100 pictures in an hour without paying to see any of them!

Here are a few of my subjects:

hey there Jeremy.
thanks a million for ur reply.
u have some awesome models in ur collection.
tough choice i have between the 5700 and the 4500 but i reckon i will have to think long and hard about it and no matter wich one i choose, i think it'll be a brilliant one simply cause its a NIKON.

thanks a mill for the reply though.

these r just some of the quality pics that i managed to take with my fuji that i have at the moment.
hope u enjoy.
chat to ya later.
Bryce

I love 'em! My mom won't allow me to get a snake

The real thing about the 4500 or the 5700, is the 4500 is half the price, 1mp less (the 4500 pictures still equate to some 30 inches wide for monstrous prints) and I think the 5700 has a slightly larger zoom, which, of course, can be corrected with a telephoto lens.
