Well, I got myself a new CASIO Exilim (EX-Z2000) after all. I'm really bad with any kind of change (the Japanese would say it is because of my blood type, haha). So far I'm satisfied, but there's yet some major testing to come.
This is my first test of the supermacro function. A pretty lithops fulviceps C170 had to pose for it. Looks like I'll need a tripod and some practice on the focusing, but considering that in this light I couldn't get any usable picture with my old camera, the abilities of this one look promising :)
