I am going on a road trip over this summer and I'd like something that can handle being zoomed in a lot. I have a very capable Nikon D5200, and a 55-300mm telephoto lens that goes with it. However, while doing (unrelated) research, I stumbled across an article that states that superzooms nowadays have 1,000mm 35mm equivalent zooms? Here's the article in question.
If I buy one of these, will I be getting the increase I'm thinking of? I know that there is a conversion factor, but if I've looked into this right, my 300mm on a Nikon DX camera is only equivalent to somewhere around 500mm in 35mm.
Would someone be able to make sure that I'm converting this right, or convert these superzoom measurements to their Nikon DX equivalent? I'd much rather buy a superzoom like this, considering that lenses beyond 300mm seem to cost silly money.
Thanks, and feel free to ask me any questions :)
EDIT: Found this website, I have decided to just crop as it will still produce a very usable image. http://www.discoverdigitalphotography.com/2013/how-does-the-zoom-of-a-superzoom-camera-compare-to-a-dslr/
