Alright peeps.....I went out and bought it. Best buy price matched it for 374.99. Its the cheapest I could find it. If I don't like it its ALL OF YOUR FAULTS;-)

Battery is charging.............


Haha. Well done Lisa! Let this be a lesson, never bow to peer pressure LOL

No, I think you'll have lots of fun with it and we're here to help if you start taking really crap photos

Hahahahaha Im sure!!! I will make sure I take some pics of birds

I feel like its going to be confusing with settings and such. The little time I spent with it had me trying to turn the wheel that isn't there. LOL The EVF is horrible....or is it just me? Its blurry? So do you all just use the screen?? Its definitely different from my Rebel! I suppose I will get use to the differences and not get confused HA! We shall see!!

I took some shots yesterday with the SX50 after getting used to my D5200.. By instinct I put the EVF to my eye and.. yeah its bad I stick to the LCD on the SX50. You will get used to operating both

I totally didn't even see the diopter adjustment so its not nearly as bad as I thought LOL! Durrrr

I was trying to get to custom colors in my colors and I cant find it. I scrolled through all of my colors and that isn't an option. I wanted to change some settings in there. What am I doing wrong?

I was probably a bit harsh on the EVF. It is serviceable. I've gone back to shooting RAW + JPG. Its mostly not needed, but there inevitably will come a time when some whites somewhere in the pic gets blown out. Custom colours are in the FUNC. SET button in the middle of the round dial - EDIT: but not available in RAW Neither is digital zoom.

Well the EVF is less the ideal compared to my dslr but it wasn't as bad after I focused in as best as I could LOL It was HORRIBLE before I realized I could do that.

WHy is it that you can't us the custom colors in the digital zoom or Raw? Because in RAW they figure you are going to tweak it anyway? Has anyone even used the digital zoom? I can't see where it will be needed lol
