Yes, it is the lens design. If there is any difference in IS it is not noticeable to me. Even at shutter speeds which are fast enough to have no problem with stability the difference remains the same. I REALLY like the HS50 and have tried every setting combination at full zoom because I want to be able to use it all the time but if I'm going to be shooting at full zoom the SX50 goes with me. I can add that I can also get sharper photos at full zoom with the Sony HX300 but they are not quite as good as the SX50 and I think in the case of the HX300 the reason is the sensor/JPEG processing combination rather than the lens.

Did you do a side-by-side comparison? From the results I have gotten, I don't see any reason why I would buy and SX50, unless I am a zoom-freak while recording video. Even the 200mm advantage of SX50 is barely noticeable when compared to downsized 16MP of HS50.
