Re: Sony A37 vs Canon SX50

This thread maybe of some help.

The disadvantage of the SX50 is the slower shooting speed, even vs some of it's superzoom competitors. As for a comparison, it depends on how long of a zoom you are looking for. I just got the Minolta 100-300mm APO(can be had for under $200 in good shape) lens for birding, and like the size and weight on my A57. As for the birding/wildlife aspect of it, the fast shooting speed of the A57 is really a nice advantage, specially for moving animals. And for me the size and weight of the A57 100-30mm combo is pretty nice.

When it come to tracking wildlife, the A57 for the most part will be better as it uses a PDAF for AF, which has it's advantages for tracking wildlife, vs the CDAF of most P&S/superzoom cameras.
