Hilarious, actually. I think some people are living far ahead of their times.
It was sad rather than hilarious for me that people still have these attitudes. I am not very optimistic that this will change a lot in the next 50 years. Maybe the 3rd generation from now won't have these crazy notions of religion/caste/divisions.
I am willing to purchase a digital camera. My budget is 10K - 12K. Please let me know, which one is the best Digital Cam within that range having good zoom, resolution and other factors (if you already know such product).
What specifically are your requirements? A steep zoom also means that the image sharpness will be severely compromised with even the slightest camera shake (unless the camera body comes with in-built image stabilisation of some sort).
Canon and Nikon are the pioneers, but if you give me a list of your requirements (be specific), I can suggest something good.
