Default What about the new HS50EXR

does anyone have one of these new Fuji HS50EXR?? I'm looking to buy a bridge camera, and am torn between the Nikon P520, Canon PowerShot SX50 HS, and the Fujifilm HS50EXR. All seem quite capable.

I have one and love it. I upgraded several months ago from the HS20, a two year old Fuji model. I don't have any experience with the Nikon model you mentioned. Specific preferences and proposed uses dictate what features will be most important to you.

What I enjoy most about the HS50 are:

The zoom range, while maintaining a decent wide angle.
The quick focus, except beyond 800-900mm it gets a bit sluggish
The overall quickness of the camera
The huge flexibility - just about every feature in its class, except GPS
The low light shooting quality using Pro Low Light - I think it is great.
The overall quality; not DSLR quality beyond 5 x 7. But 5 x 7 or less you would be hard pressed to tell the difference.

You WILL need an extra battery or two. I don't get the battery mileage that most proclaim. I do miss the AA's of the HS20.
