Casio EX-Z2000 Lens details

The EX-Z2000 features an inbuilt lens giving a focal range of 26-130mm giving it a 5.0 x zoom which might not be ideal but it will be useful in certain circumstances.

At it's widest 26mm, the lens provides an aperture of f2.8 which will be pretty sluggish and not good in low light occasions and you will probably find it difficult to capture a shallow depth of field. You will likely also need to up your ISO which causes noisy photos. At the long end, 130mm comes to f6.5 making it fairly sluggish and you will have to go with slower shutter speeds.
