I owned DSC-P10, DSC-P150, DSC-R1 and will buy the DSC-H5 because of 12X Optical zoom lens and Super SteadyShot stabilization system for rock-steady long-distance photos.

I am too old for changing lens so prefer changing camera :-)instead, also aiming by the screen is much easier for an amateur like me . At Ebay the R1 is drop to $700 +

For 700 bucks you can get the Nikon D50 body and a Sigma/Tamron lens 18-200mm or even 28-300mm and that's way better than the H5 (let alone the R1) can give you.

In this way you won't have to change lenses.

If I were spending 700, I would have to agree with going the route you suggest or something similiar. There is no way I would invest 700 on any current Point and Shoot. For me to even think of going that route, it would have to be ultrazoom, high megapixel, IS, large sensorand in a body no larger than the FZ30.
