Seems to be a reasonable bet if the M3 has the same sized sensor as the previous Ms.

These shots were taken with an SX-50 in "green box" mode, full zoom plus digital zoom (4800mm equivalent) handheld. To the naked eye the ducks were just dots and you could not tell what kind of bird they were.

I realize these shots are not National Geographic quality, but for a cheap P/S zoomed out like that, it is amazing that you can get this much detail and that the IS actually worked!

Is a remarkable camera, alright.  Well done Don.

Understatement alert. ;D I agree.

Here is my contribution.

I have the SX50HS and it has quite surprising IQ.  If the SX60 has comparable IQ it is definitely a camera I would have my eye on.  It would be very interesting to see what the min and max apertures are.

Looking forward to both reviews - I really like that both of you focus on real-world use of the gear.

I agree with you, chart tests are too limited.

Anybody care to venture a guess as to what happened to the birds in flight in this image?  ;)

OK I'll bite
When's a reflection not a reflection?..... when the source is missing  :o

The only solution I've come up with is that the UFO on the far left has death rayed the lower bird and is levitating it up to the mother ship to perform some hiddious experiments on  the poor thing.

....... that might be wrong  ???

LOL...not quite. 

Someone must know what happened with this crazy bird in flight image???

Looks like an atmospheric reflection, a mirage.

Hey guys!
So I noticed on the digital-picture website iq comparison tool that FF seemed always sharper than a crop sensor.
Are there any physical explanations for this phenomenon?
I am new to this so....

I believe he also frames the shot the same so you are shooting from a greater distance with a crop camera.

Great job and an award well earned.  Congrats.  That had to be a great thrill with the special visitor.

So you're saying there's a chance...   ???

What it says is there is a definite probability of a possible maybe.
