Tamron's AF18-200mm F/3.5-6.3 lens is part of their digitally integrated (Di II) lens series that's designed for digital SLRs and is not recommended for use with cameras having image sensors larger than 24x16mm, or 35mm film cameras.

For some time my favorite pocket camera has been Konica Minolta's DiMAGE Xg; I never go anywhere without it being tucked into its matching leather case.

With digital capture, fluorescent light can be your friend and I don't mean those long tubes hanging in lighting fixtures from the ceiling.

"There is only you and your camera. The limitations in your photography are in yourself, for what we see is what we are."--Ernst Haas
