I see Pocket Lint didn't get the aperture at 1200mm correct. (-:
I must admit not much good info here, other than some different pics.

They probably left on the lens cap, so didn't notice the very clear 1:3.4-6.5 written on the lens. They can still claim hands-on though, since they got to hold it.

Yes… I hear you. I never was a big fan of Pocket Lint, but they got us a little more insight on the SX50 very quickly. (Little is the key word here.)

The SX50 looks promising, but I have a real strong reservation on that slow lens. Time and some tests will let us know how quickly the lens stops down as it zooms to the 1200mm mark. If it matches the SX40 step for step it might just work out.

It should an active time in the Canon forums for a while. (-:

So what makes it better than the SX40? It's like when a search engine gives you an answer 1.2 milliseconds faster then another.
