This is really starting to get ridiculous, who needs a 1200 mm equivalent in a body that's impossible to hold still??
Superzoom compacts have moved away from usefulness to marketing gimmick IMHO.
There are several members on here who have bought and seem to like the SX50, and it is a 1200mm equivalent.
I am one and it can be hand held steady enough to use. It takes very nice pictures also.
