Canon SX40 versus Canon SX50


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 the SX40 still an issue over the SX30 and how is AF speed in the SX50 ?

So in my mind, apart from RAW, I think Id rather go for the SX40 as it has faster frames-per-second, good low light ability and an insignificantly shorter zoom range.

Any thoughts ?
