I just received the SX40 from Amazon, today, and am seriously thinking about returning it in favor of the SX50. The only reservation I really have, is the higher minimum aperature of the SX50. Some reviewers on Amazon agree that compared to the SX40, the SX50 is much harder to use in low light situations. One even goes so far as to say that because of this, the camera really isn't a good all-around camera, but should only be considered a specialty tool for birders and other wildlife...

Hi,The differences of interest between these two cameras seems to be that the new model has RAW, a higher resolution screen, a few more ISO options, much slower shots per second and a slower lens of 3.7 versus 2.8 (or something like that).But I have read people's reviews about AF speed and the failure of the SX40 to have long exposures.So can the SX50 do long exposures of more than 15 seconds ?Does high ISO options compensate sufficiently for the slower lens in the SX50 ?Is the AF speed in...
