Re: Expected Aperture at tele 500mm+ range for SX50??

Maximum aperture is F5.0 at 100 mm (35mm equiv.) not 550mm. Maximum aperture at 1200mm is F6.5 not F5.6. I have a photo at 899mm at F5.6. I attempted to zoom a little further beyond 899mm at F5.6 but any attempt caused the aperture to change to F6.5. It may be possible to go a bit further at F5.6 but the zoom lever is pretty touchy and I couldn't do it.
