THis is not a particularly good photo, but I have just uploaded it to show how good the SX50 is. Elsewhere I started a thread to show that the SX50 can outperform the 5DIII equipped with the 100-400L. I take the SX50 with me when I travel to a business meeting and have some opportunity for a walk about. This photo was taken on Boston Common.

It's full frame, downsized to upload and download quickly.

The Eurasian Sparrow hawk is shot from 5 meters, 100 iso and 65 mm (in my garden). I did only a crop from landscape to portrait.
The Common Kingfisher is shot from 13 meters, 80 iso and 1200 mm. The height was 2.2x more. So from the 12Mp, 2.5Mp is left?
Hi nice shots. So did you happen to be 5m away when the Hawk landed or did you manage to move there?
Cheers Brian

The Eurasian Sparrow hawk is shot from behind the windows in my garden.
This shot from a Common Kingfisher is also from 5 meters behind some bushes (that was the SX40)

Gorgeous. I am so jealous. I would print this and put it on my living room wall.

Some more:


Where the SX50 does not shine is in flying birds.  Or it my skills that it will not go well. This gave a lot of trouble to take.
