Re: Need to buy a zoom lens..

As pvasc says. Take a look at the Panasonic 45-200 and 100-300. The former may be a compromise for what you seek.

Re: Need to buy a zoom lens..

Re: Converting old printed photos to digital format?

I would go for the V600 ie the last one, this being based on my experience with the Epson scanner that I have, if you do not like it trade it in or eBay it.

Re: Converting old printed photos to digital format?

There are only two ways to convert prints to digital and get good consistent results.

1- Scanning using a good flatbed scanner.

2- A copy stand,lights and digital camera.

End of story.
