Cameras: Is the Nikon P510 worthy of having?

Here is a saleslady holding and demonstring the P510 42x zoom compact digital camera from Nikon in the 5th floor of SM Noth Annex Building.

The camera boasts of the following:
Resolution 16.1 megapixel, BSI CMOS sensor
Lens 24-1000mm ED glass
Max. Zoom Zoom 42X optical
view screen 3 in. TFT, (921,000 Dot Resolution) vari-angle LCD
Features GPS, Image stabilization, auto panoramic stitch
Video Full HD (1080p), stereo sound
Continuous shooting 5 frames per second

I have the samsung WB150F 18x zoom digital camera, but I would love to complement my arsenal of cameras with this Nikon P510. Perfect for shooting birds!

Yes, this camera is worth having not withstanding the GPS geotagging feature is virtually useless in the Philippines!

The price of this camera is around P25,000.00 with the regular price of P28,000. The price in the US right now is around 400 dollars minimum at Amazon! So I can only suggest when the price goes down to 17,000 pesos. Wait next year for prices to go down as right now the prices of most cameras are going down!

But right now, I have to save money. Maybe I will be able to afford one this coming December.
