Nikon FM10 gave me some pretty good shots. Now over the time I am feeling its limits - Film based and stock 30-70mm.
Canon SX10IS was much talked about and 20x zoom is first from Canon. Buying a full fledged DSLR was way out of my budget and it was not going to give me a good telelense too. So I decided to go for a non SLR digi cam.
Not sure about FM10, I think I will just treasure it.
I am so excited to take it out on shoot....
