Re: Suggestion for Canon SX40 Replacement

Others have some good ideas. Here are mine.

The SX40 had not bad picture quality for a small sensor superzoom camera in 2012. I had the even longer zoomed SX50 for a couple of years. I liked it except for the small OVF.

I have the RX10 IV now. It's a different kind of beast. It zooms optically out to 600 mm and out to 1200 with enhanced digital zoom. I think it's better than the average digital zoom, but that's just my opinion.

It's built sturdy. It takes pictures so fast. It's probably the best superzoom.

If you are happy with your image quality with the SX40, consider the Nikon P950.  It's much bigger than the SX40 but its OVF is much, much better. I just checked the prices on Amazon and, wow, it's expensive now. However, if you can find one for $800 or less (new) or $700 or less refurbished, I think it's a good deal. The zoom range is more than double that of the SX40.

Anyway, good luck with whatever you decide on.
