Re: issues with Canon Powershot SX40 HS batteries and zoom

I lost my SX40 last summer to a lens issue after a happy six years or so. The shop told me that there were no longer any parts available and it would be cheaper to find a second-hand one than repair my own. I thoroughly enjoyed the camera during its lifetime and took some nice pictures with it, including many macro shots with a Raynox 150. One of the last photos I took is the one below. I'd like a similarly sixed SX with a 1" sensor and PDAF next time round.....(if only). 400mm was a good far end for me, so happy to keep that, although an additional control dial would be nice. Not keen on the SX60, read some not-so-glowing reports.
