its too much stuck in the middle, there are so many options in its price range, larger sensor or even less $ w/ much larger zooms. that the only way to make it 'marketable' would be to make it a larger version of the fz200....maybe 24-500mm (may have to cut focal length to get a constant 2.8???) at a constant 2.8, close enough to the fz in focal but would have the operation,evf and the slightly larger sensor, but lens speed comes at such a premium $ with the larger sensor cameras and could could stand out against kits (dslr or m4/3).

just my 1/2cent worth.

Still with motorized zoom? H3ll no!

Hs50 already stomped the fz200 in every category except smoother video zooming. The aperture/fl relation I have stated a couple of times already narrowed down the constant aperture of fz200. Fuji R&D is dumb if the aperture of hs50 is stuck(highly unlikely) at f/5.6 starting at 600mm.
