CNET hs50exr review
Apr 4, 2013

FYI: http://m.cnet.com/reviews/fujifilm-finepix-hs50exr/35566922

They compared hs50exr fz200 and sx50.... And conclusion:

"There are definitely a lot of megazoom options available -- from basic snapshot cameras to ones that are mostly point-and-shoots with a bit of extra control to those designed for enthusiasts. The Fujiflim FinePix HS50EXR falls into "enthusiast" group, but it's a very capable "family camera," with solid results if you just leave it in auto. Though its photo quality and performance still isn't that of larger-sensor cameras like dSLRs and mirrorless compacts, you're not going to get one of those with a 24-1000mm zoom lens. The Panasonic FZ200 still has a bit of an edge for its continuous shooting performance, better video quality, and its f2.8 zoom lens, but the HS50EXR does have a longer telephoto and some nice extras that will help you get better pictures in difficult lighting. I like having the manual zoom for shooting fast-moving subjects, too, because you can move in and out faster and more accurately than a motorized zoom; it's just not great for movies."

The time to first shot is definitely wrong. It should be 1sec or less only. I bet they did not enable the High Performance mode so even the AF speed was affected.

Yeap, the CNET said good things about HS50, but I prefer kim review, It's more depth review.

There is more reviews coming, I think the ePHOTOzine is next. They launched two videos samples in last 3 hours.
