Jim - big findings on another lake trip.
Honestly - I would say get her a P7000,or similar.

! ; FUZZY FROSTED WHITE,LACKING IN THE MORE PERCICE DETAIL.

I should have kept the P7000,but - I have this,I wanted it,it has 'range'...with great compromise in quality.

I shot about 100 shots(at the lake) with this P520...
and about 50 shots with my Nikon Coolpix 8400 AND THAT'S WITH THE NIKON CONVERTER...;

WOW -what a difference!The first 100 couldn't compare with the last 50;it was easy to see.
and anything beyond say 90mm,(if lens is 24mm-1000mm)POOR AT BEST.

Now Know - I'm critical here...but if you see the compairason...VERY oveious.

Also know - I will 'fix-THE BEST P520 SHOTS'.

OK - if my 8400 = 100% image quality,;the p520 is 50% at best.

Can't say why a lot of shots were 'poor'.

I was very excited to get this 'news' to you guys...I didn't convert the shots yet...I'll add to this post later if OK.

Add #1 Thank goodness this pair of cameras is my secondary outfit.
(My primary is ; Panasonic GH1w7-14,and my Canon SX 40 HS.
