Re: SX50's EVF? Not good.

I certainly agree with you that the EVF is not what you would call good.  But mine is better than my SX40.  It is larger and doesn't look like it is at the end of a tunnel.  I would estimate that it is 30% larger in view than the SX40.

My diopter adjustment can get the center sharp, or the edges sharp, but not both at the same time.  So I set mine to get the center sharp.  With that it is not too bad.  I am able to read text on book titles that I cannot read with the sX40 at the same lens zoom, so to me that is better, but it could use a bunch of improvement for sure.

Anyway, congratulations on the new camera.  The pictures it takes and the better IS and more zoom are its strong points.
