So I bought the Canon SX50 HS. I’ve got a lot of pictures on Flickr, so I’ll just embed this one:
It’s a spruce tree in my driveway, and I was standing about 50 feet from the bough you see here.
I put up a lot of examples of the amazing zoom on this beast. I also like the low-light capabilities.
I’m thinking of getting a FA-DC67A Ring Adapter. Obviously I don’t need a telephoto lens, but I might get a polarizing filter. It’s been a long time since I had a camera that could accommodate anything like that.
