sx50 is much better ..... 24mm wide 1200mm zoom ..... do you need more ..... added features not worth the price or temptation for upgrade

I don't think so, I had the SX50 & upgraded, finding it really hard to focus without a tripod when I use that wonderful zoom, really really hard to hold camera still, won't focus because of increased shake. I liked the SX50 better!

Is it worth upgrading from the SX50HS?
