Canon SX50 HS super-zoom?


Not trying to be a smart@ss or suggest anything I wouldn't do myself (and yes I have had quite a few Leicas). Why consider a glorified point-n-shoot? Because in my case, it's probably the only sort of really long telephoto setup that I'm likely to carry around for casual shooting. Plus the whole outfit weighs less than 600 g. The Fujifilm X-S1 and HS50EXR also look worthy, but I'm leaning towards the Canon because it weighs a lot less.

I'm not keen to carry a FF SLR, 400/2.8 lens and stout carbon fiber tripod equipped with geared head Monday-Friday on my daily commute in hopes of getting some migratory bird shots before work or during my lunchtime outings, yet it's just those sorts of times where I have the best opportunities: Photo ops don't wait for weekends and holidays.
