Anyone tried a wide angle on this camera? I had a look at one the other day - looks huge and as if it'd weigh a ton. I couldn't try it out at the time as Jessops didn't have the 2 rings needed, but they've ordered them for me to have go with. I'm not sure if I could hold it steady!

Carol, within reason, it is easier to hold a heavy camera steady than it is a lightweight one. I use an E-20, which is heavier than the 5050, and have no problems at all. Of course, for slow shutter speeds or really critical work, a tripod is essential.

Thanks, cameraman, I'll await the call from Jessops!
