I purchased this product this week! First, I sold my SX40...I will miss it...but I had to have the SX50. I must admit that I now believe this is a perfect camera not just because of the 50x zoom but the raw file capability. It has been fun roaming the house looking for the perfect shot...tomorrow I take it on vacation. I also own the G12! and I have no desire to upgrade to the G15...what happened to the swivel screen?
