Re: Sony A37 vs Canon SX50

I have both a Sony A37 with a 18-250 lens (375mm in reality) and a Fuji HS30 (720mm). The Fuji is my main birding and wildlife camera due to the reach.  Its macro capability is superb.  But if the light gets anything less than very good then the IQ drops quite quickly.  This means that in winter the Fuji hardly gets a look in.  Here the Sony takes over.  I tend to find that in Winter birds are more approachable and predictable as they either use feeders or bunch in good sized flocks.  Less reach is therefore needed but a better sensor in low light is.

Thus both is best.  SX50, Nikon P510 and the new HS50. Great reach in the right conditions.  DSLR the rest of the time.  Win win
