Re: HS50EXR - SL1000 - Any other superzoom - Which one to buy ??

Hi,I have recently purchased the SL1000 and really like the 50x zoom,also the 2x digital on top,also produces some quite good results (using the view finder and holding solidly,helps!).

I tried the Sony HX300 and although I loved the feel of the camera and the variety of settings I wasn't overly impressed with some of the results,alot of the time the pictures just weren't sharp or too noisey.The SL1000 has produced better photos most of the time,not quite as nice to hold and less settings,but good clear photos!

I considered the HS50EXR but I wanted the biggest zoom possible on a bridge camera which narrowed it down to the HX300,SL1000 or the Canon SX50.The HX disappointed,the SX was alittle small in the hand and 'only' 12mp,which left the SL.So far I am more than happy with my choice
