    Thanks Mocky, the error is now corrected.

  • Daniel

    The old SX50 is still better then the new Panasonic, im waiting for the SX60HS but there are no rumors

  • Micky

    FZ70 also has optional adapter that can add another telephoto lens to increase it to 100x optical zoom.

  • William

    I purchased the Panny FZ70 online with a 30 day return policy. Tried numerous settings and lighting combinations but the resulting images inevitably contained significant noise. Returned the camera and purchased the SX50 – photos have been outstanding with the Canon. So happy I switched.

    FZ70 shoots 9fps in a 3-shot burst, which is really 3 shots in .3 seconds, so technically that translates to 9fps. In order to truly shoot 9 frames in 1 second, you’d have to lower the resolution to 3MP.
    You can also purchase a 58mm threaded telephoto converter for the Canon SX50 as well.
