    Is a 3x optical zoom just too weak to get a fairly detailed pic of the moon?

    Here is the best I could muster:

    expose for the moon. You'll get more detail your curently exposing for all the blackness and thats blowing the moon out.
    Try a faster shutter speed maybe around 1/250th - 1/500th

    How do you like the G5, it will be one of the choices I have as far as prizes @ work, so Im considering that as a nice upgrade from my A70.

    It's a hell of a lot better compaired to my old Olympus D490, really like it. Don't think I have any complaints about it yet :)

    Yup, but the moon isn't any bigger than the pic I posted hehe that was cropped out of the original RAW image.

    Here's some info on it...
