I agree in as much as a purpose lens will rock compared with a super zoom, but at the same time a super zoom can be convenient when taking happy snaps.Megazooms are completely useless
Damien Demolder Why buy an SLR if you are going to restrict it with a lens that's as frustrating as the one on your compact?
Eg. My new 105/2.8 macro is wonderful and sharp.
Yet my 18-250 is handy at other times
