Hard to tell. I'd check the offerings on dpreview.com . Things to
consider are effective zoom range, sensitivity, F number of lense,
megapixels, memory card type.
Cross check with ebay to see if there is a decent deal out there since
many people like to finance upgrades by selling the old camera.
A lot of this depends on you and your needs. Just to put something
out there a minolta dimage z1 might be in the ball park if you like to
shoot both near and far and 3MP on SD cards appeals to you.
No, I don't own one, never had one but my uncle has one and he likes
it. The other day he was sure that my Sony V3 7MP camera had to be
better for bird shots than his. Well not really. He has a 10x zoom
and 3MP. I have a 4x zoom, a 1.7x tele attachment and 7mp. Works out
close enough to be the same.
There you have it, a suggestion which is a challenge to others to
knock it down and offer a better choice.
