I love my HS50 but it has one shortcoming. It's just not very good beyond 700mm.

Tim, do you feel that's mainly due to the lens design on the Fuji?  Having used the FZ70 for a while now I don't notice any excessive softness at the extreme long end. I'd say the limitation to getting sharp photos is more on the ability of the shooter to hold it steady.

I consider myself pretty good with long lenses having shot DSLR telephotos without any stabilization for years.  But even so I get a good number of photos from the FZ70 showing some blur from camera shake. You can boost the ISO to make it easier but of course you're trading some image quality.  I shoot at ISO 100 whenever possible. ISO 200 still looks pretty good though.

The Canon SX50 images look quite good to me. I almost bought one. Decided to wait and see what the successor will offer.
