I have a zoom lens;
a fairly decent one.
I bought it when I got my new camera earlier this year.
It was one of those package deals.
And I faithfully bring it along everytime I take my camera with me.
Just ask my DH who often has to carry it along with the other stuff I haven't used.
And yet, I still want to believe my DSLR is a point and shoot;
I've yet to even TRY the zoom lens--
even when the photo definitely calls for it.
