Hi,

Please forgive me if I ask a silly question. But I just can't get my head round to it. I'm new to photography, Nikon, Nikonians and my brand new D40.

Having said that. My brother has a PANASONIC Lumix DMC-FZ8EF and the zoom it's got its amazing. The close-up pictures awesome and as I said the zoom is superb.

I've got the D40 here with me. I bought it because it was only £60 more that the Panasonic one and well, everybody knows Nikon so I thought (still thinking I'm right) it was the right choise.

So, if the D40 is much better camera that the Panasonic Lumix, why the D40 does not have the same zoom? I want zoom!!!!!

I've got the feeling that I am going to need to spend money in a new lends? If so, why did I not buy the Panasonic one, for £60 less?

I would really appreciate if somebody can clear my doubts!.

So far, I have to say that I love the noice it makes when shooting hehehe

Thank you.
Didac
