What 42X is all about

Just as it seems my iPhone is the best camera I’ve got, the major limitation is that it’s all wide-angle. Yes, it has image stabilization and anti-barrel-distortion, But I missed a good long telephoto lens which is as necessary as a polarizer in desert country. To scratch that itch, I procured a so-called Supertelephoto camera that are so trendy lately, a Nikon P520. I purposely got a fairly cheap camera so as not to be worried if I throw it in my backpack and have a mountain bike event!  It takes good pictures but not great. Next time I will choose better. For a $100 more I could have gotten a Panasonic Lumix with a Leica lens. Caveat emptor  =:->
