Re: Suggestion for Canon SX40 Replacement

The FZ80 is much smaller than the P950. I think both of those cameras will give you less noise at higher ISO's than the SX40. I had the FZ70, which supposedly had the same lens as the FZ80. I thought it was a little soft at full zoom. I think the P950 will be sharper at full zoom. One of the biggest differences will be in the optical viewfinder (OVF). The Nikon P950 and P1000 have much, much better OVF's. That's one reason why I sold my P900. Also, the P950 and P1000 shoot RAW files, not just JPEGs.  The FZ80 will be easy to carry around and will probably take decent shots. It has a pretty good burst mode, too.

The P950 weighs 2.2 pounds (about a kilogram).

The  FZ80 weighs under 1.4 pounds.

The SX40 weighs just over 1.3 pounds.
