I had the SX30 and SX50. I also had the P900 and now have the P1000. The P950 is what I would get if I didn’t have the P1000. The P950 has a good OVF. Its image quality is similar to that of the P1000. If you are in the US keep your eyes open for discounted refurbished models. About a month ago, USA Nikon site was selling refurbished P950’s for $499. I also had the FZ300 and loved the F/2.8 aperture for the whole zoom range. If you can get it for $400 or less, it’s a bargain. Good luck with whatever you decide to get.

Thank you for the feedback, especially with regards to the P950.  I ended up snagging a FZ80 on Amazon for just a under $300, but I haven't opened it yet and am now thinking I would be better off with a P950.  My greatest concern about the P950 is the weight.  I am hoping it is not too large.  Knowing I can get a refurbished P950 for under $500 makes it even more attractive--so long as the weight is not too great.

I had considered the FZ300 due to the f/2.8 aperture, but I don't think I will be happy with its limited focal range.
