It may also be worth also looking at one of the other 4x optical zoom cameras currently available including because of it's better review score, the Fujifilm X10[plb_1150_price].

If this camera optical zoom is not big enough for you then you might want to look at the Nikon Coolpix P310[plb_2119209_price] (4.2x and higher rated), or the Panasonic DMC-TS5[plb_1900903_price] (4.6x and higher rated).
