I would like some help from you digital camera buffs. I have a Olympus C2100 and I would like to up-grade it. I enjoy the stabilization and zoom on that camera but it is only a 2.1 megapixel. I use my camera for wildlife and flower photography. I need a lot of zoom and a good macro. I'm goingback and forth on whether tobuy a SLR or single lens camera. Will I be disappointed if I don't buy the SLR?Carrying and changing the lens in the field was somewhat of a problem it myold "filmcamera."My pictures are usually just e-mailed to friends. Thanks, in advance; on any help.

If you're taking all shots in bright daylight there shouldn't be much difference for your use.

But one thing is sure, for non-SLRs you have to look other makers than Oly, their newer models don't have stabilization.

Like VWMom, I too would recommend the Canon S-2 IS as an excellent choice.
