I may have to get one of these, pretty solid feature list. I like the 6.4fps shooting with no buffer limit (and they don't charge $800 for wi-fi).

I've ordered one. No Wi-Fi (HAS NFC which is worthless to me), but I can use a eye-Fi card.

The Zoom Framing Feature sold me, I returned my SX50 because framing was so difficult. No GPS either, but based on my use of the SX50, it has the potential to replace my 100-400L for a camera to carry in my car to shoot wildlife that I frequently see in the fields and trees. Supposedly, the difficult to frame zoom issue is fixed. Canon is very predictable, they make improvements but do not re-invent something that already works.
