I'm considering trading in BOTH my Canon SX230 AND NEW SX50HS for a single, top IQ producing P&S to accompany my DSLR. Doesn't have to be a Canon. But does have to have a 5X (or 10X preferred) zoom.

So what's out there that I could acquire, from trading off my two other Canons?

What about using a tele/wide ange converter? These are available for the Canon G-Series including the G1X and G15 as well as for the Nikon P7100/P7700. I am using a teleconverter with a G1X and are quite happy with it. You get the IQ of the G1X and a longer reach. If you want to travel light you only take the camera (in case of G15 or P7700 even smaller) and if you need the reach or wide angel you can bring the converters (either tele or wide angle). It is still a smaller pack than a DSLR plus lenses... just my 2c.

Hope it helps
