Canon has had Lens Error problems with the S95 and to a great extent with the S100.  Canon issued a Product Advisory for the S100 since most cameras in certain Lot numbers failed.  I have not heard of similar problems with the SX50.  On the other hand, the Fuji XS1 appears to be a great camera, but not quite the same class as the SX50 as the Fuji is significantly larger (almost DSLR size), heavier and almost twice as expensive, yet it has less zoom range.  If you can afford it and want to carry it around, why not get it?  Only you can know if you will ever trust the SX50 again.
