My dad wants to go from a compact digital camera with 5x zoom to a DSLR in the £300-£400 price range.
We've noticed that practically all of them in that range come with a 18-55mm lens, and that non of them mention the amount of zoom available.
I presume the "18-55mm" part of the lens dictates the amount of zoom?
If that is the case, what x does a 18-55mm lens have if you were to compare it to the zoom of a compact?
As you can tell, we're rather new to this
