I own the 5700. I've also been looking at the 8800, or possibly the 8400.
The extreme wide angle perspective of the 8400 is very attractive to me,
and has never before been offered in a ZLR. Of course, I would miss having
the extra tele. The 5700 and 8700 generally require the use of a tripod
when shooting at full telephoto, whereas the image stabilizer of the 8800
should (if it works properly) increase handheld shooting ability throughout
the zoom range in many situations. Decisions, decisions..
