    No you don't!

    Very nice photos!

    I've shot over 15,000 frames of film, most with a 35-105, for portrait
    kinda' stuff, and have had a few killer zooms for outdoor stuff. But
    when I got my N990 with the measly 3x zoom, I initially felt constrained
    by the lack of a long zoom range.

    It caused me to look at my technique in a different light, (so to
    speak), and I started thinking more about the 'big picture' rather that
    zooming in on some particular piece of interest. I think it has made me
    a better photographer.

    Limitations do give rise to changes in procedures. Having never owned a
    'long zoom' camera, I use zoom as a way to frame shots, rather than a
    way to get 'closer'. Most of my pictures are shot in situations where
    it is possible to move closer to the subject, but in those cases where
    this isn't possible, a good zoom can sure help make the shot.

    IMO, a long zoom (at least 300mm or 10x) is indispensable for nature
    photography and portraits.
