so you mean to tell me that 1200mm will get you much closer than 400mm?
It is not as simple as that. The lens is only a 1200 mm equivalent - it is actually a 215 mm lens with a 12.1 megapixel backlit 1/2.3" sensor. There are always arguments in the Forum whether a crop really does give you extra reach. For this camera, the 6x crop factor does work. Until now, the consumer super-zooms haven't been able to beat a conventional DSLR because of poor lens and tiny sensor, but at extreme focal length, the SX50 can more than hold its own against a popular Canon set up for serious photographers.
