RE: [pct-l] cameras and pictures

This thread reminded me of a camera question:

	How imortant is a zoom lens?

I ask, because except for the lack of a zoom the Olympus Sylus Epic seems
like a great candidate for a trail camera.  The Epic has:

- an apparently excellent, slightly wide angle, F2.8 lens.  An F2.8 lens is
blazingly "fast" for a compact, auto everything, camera and would be
wonderful for marginal light conditions.

- "weatherproof"

- 4.7 oz!

At 4.7oz the Epic is over three ounces lighter than my Elph!
