Beth,

You might look into the Olympus OM-D E-M1 with 40-150 mm lens (2x multiplier with this sensor + 1.4x teleconverter gives you the equivalent of a 420 mm SLR lens). This is a wonderful camera and lens combination, very high quality, as you’ll see if you read reviews. You can also get a 300 mm, which with 1.4x TC gives you the equivalent of an 840 mm lens, but I actually prefer the versatility of the zoom option.

> Hey Tweets, wondered what you would recommend for a good easy to carry camera for travel. I have a Lumix 25-600 which does okay but for multiple shots is slow. I also have a Canon EOS Rebel T2i with lots of lenses but it is cumbersome. It does great but I'm thinking lighter weight would be better for travel but need something with good quality for shooting birds and such.
