Re: The S3IS was really a great camera....

My son and one of my daughters are still using and loving their S3IS.  The strong point of the S3IS is the fast lens (f/2.7-3.5) so that high ISO is seldom needed.  I think you'll find that the slow lens of the SX50HS will often force you into using higher ISO to maintain shutter speed.  You may find the Panasonic FZ200 with a constant f/2.8 lens and a very high resolution electronic viewfinder more to your liking.
