Re: Am I just spoiled?

Yes, you are. I too am somewhat disappointed by my SX50, even at ISO80 using RAW. But that's my fault for having unrealistic expectations of technology improvements since I bought my last compact camera about four years ago.

There's a good reason why DSLRs still sell. But a DSLR left at home takes really bad photos, whereas a camera in your pocket will take infinitely better ones.

I find that as long as I don't crop photos more than slightly I can ignore the detail quality and enjoy the overall image. So in a way it's a return to my photographic roots, where all the work was done before I pressed the shutter, not afterwards. technology has made me lazy.
