Canon PowerShot SX50 HS

Canon has leapfrogged Nikon's P510 with the SX50 HS, a camera sporting an improbably long 24-1200mm 50x optical zoom. They're claiming improved image stabilization, up to 4.5 stops, but hand-holding 1200mm is bound to be difficult. Other improveme...

Pentax K-5 IIs

The K-5 IIs is the same exact camera as the K-5 but sells for $100 more and lacks an anti-aliasing filter. Such a move should yield sharper photos but invites distracting moire in fine patterns. If you know how to avoid moire and crave the highest...

Pentax K-30
