    I'm thinking about buying one of these from @EMPIRETECANDY for LPR.

    What I can't quite figure out is why the Z5 is $214 and the Z12 is $200. I would think that the bigger zoom would carry the bigger price tag. Am I missing something here? Does anyone have experience using either of these for LPR?

    Thanks guys

    Moore's Law and charging what the market will bare.

    IT in Asia is a funny old thing. Release a new and improved product at a lower price point and let the uninformed buy they old stuff at old prices.

    I'd estimate around 140-150 feet.

    I went ahead and purchased the IPC-HFW5231E-Z12 tonight. I think it will work out quite nicely in the location I have for it. I will post before and after pictures.
