I'm thinking about stepping up to a DSLR, but I haven't ruled out upper end non SLR if I could find one that had zoom & focus on the lens, not as a rocker switch controlling a motor.

I have a DiMAGE 7Hi now and both are on the lens though the focus is only a electronic type ring, not a actual manual control.

The other 'want' is a camera that uses a CF card as I feel those SD cards are way too small.

Any ideas?

I think you need to narrow it down for a us a little bit more.

What types of photography do you do?

How much do you have to spend?

The Fuji S-9000 series cameras have manual focus and zoom.

Occasional, casual use, but when I do it, I want the feel of a somewhat real lens as opposed to those 'toy' chinsey silver compact cameras one sees all the time.

It's just I wasn't sure that I wanted to spend over a grand on a DSLR w/a high zoom lens. I see there is the Fuji 6000 & the 9100. I know Panasonic had one, but it looks like tht is long gone and I wasn't a fan of Panasonic anyway.

I'm also concerned about EVF since my Minolta DiMAGE 7Hi EVF is terrible when it comes to focusing. Actually I have gotten more out of focus shots than in focus. Combine that with the fact I wear eyeglasses was one reason I thought about stepping up to a DSLR.
