@-kytz-:
May I recommend the Panasonic Lumix LX3?
It's very good for panaromic photos as it's got a wide angle of 24mm. brows.gif
It's also got HD Video Recording (at 720p if not mistaken). I have seen the quality of it which is quite good but can never be compared with a HD Camcorder. tongue.gif

LX3 retails about 1500 to 1600. Check out the Garage Sales section for a bigger picture (no pun intended, lol).

@PeeNut:
Cons of S90:
S90 doesn't have a hot-shoe mount for flash.
S90's lens (28mm) isn't as wide as LX3 lens (24mm).
However, S90's lens is more tele (105mm) but LX3 lens isn't so much tele (60mm).
LX3 is also said to have better build quality than S90 (Sorry Canon-ers...)

Cons of LX3:
LX3 isn't as compact as S90 because of it's protruding lens and lens cap...

Btw, I'm on no side (neutral). I am however, a Canon DSLR user...

Hey can give any advice on canon 55-250mm vs tamron 70-300mm ? does the IS in 55-250 really make that much of a difference ? Tamron has a 1:2 macro and a long zoom so it seems like a good choice to test both worlds before I spend more money in either one.


I was quoted Rm 950 for the 55-250 IS but seems overpriced ?

I see. Thanks for the advice. In this case really hard to decide. Have to choose for the feel.

@Hexism:
The price that you're quoted for the Canon EF-S 55-250 IS at RM950 is way overpriced!
I got quoted for RM800 and it was a walk-in-price at Key Color, The Garden (no bargaining).
Yes, I'd recommend the 55-250 (that's what I'm currently using). It's got "IS" which is very important in telephoto lenses.
Scrap the idea about 1:2 Macro. A real macro lens is when it's 1:1

@wzseow:
Read the above posts, I did a comparison...

@PeeNut:
No problem mate, glad to help.

@pychan:
Get the Nikon D90.
It's got better specs and is in a different range when compared to the 500D (which I'm currently using).
The D90 is a semi-pro body. However, the 500D is an entry-level body. Don't buy the 500D just because of HD Video Recording.
When you're recording at Full HD 1080p, the frame rate of 20 FPS is poor. You'd require at least 30 FPS...
Just my 2 cents, I'm not sure about Sony though.
