Bought last week a new Rollei DR 5100, same as Ricoh GX ive been told , but it only goes to 85 mm at the long end, If i had known this i would not have bought the Rollei, My good lady is not amused , does any one know if Rollei or Ricoh do a small camera that goes from "8 mm to say 110 mm or more , or can recommend something else? this is to be the family camera many thanks.

I don't think you will ever find a small camera that goes from 8 to 110 mm. That is almost 14X zoom (13.75, actually). Most of the really small point and shoot types are 3 to 4 X optical zoom.
