JS, thanks for sharing your yea's and nay's for the HS50. Very useful information.

My experience with the HS series is much like Ralph's comments above. EV's are so poor that I have to use the LCD when shooting. If you are looking for a camera with an impressive EV, try picking up an 'old' panny G1. I own two of these baby bears. Nice sensor, perfect birding camera and beautiful EV, and manual to boot. I'd also highly recommend the Fuji s100fs. They are difficult to find, solidly built. There have been lots of noise about some areas of imperfections but hey, no camera is going to be perfect. The s100fs sure comes close in my books.

The slowest HS series camera to focus, process and regroup is the HS10. I can build half a house in-between shots. I paid $500 plus tax when it came on the market. It's a heck of a macro camera, but I think all digitals do a pretty good job for macro work. Hey, I'll gladly trade you the HS10 for your HS50. Deal? Wait. I already know the answer.

Also, took a look at your shots in the other thread. Great work, excellent images. Looking forward to seeing many more.

Thanks for the kind remarks about my images, Frank.

As for the EVF, I've made some changes to the settings based on the recommendations here (60fps and high performance) so we'll see if that makes things better.

Umm... 'no' on the trade offer... but, as you said, you already knew that.
