I have a Canon 600D SLR with several lens up to 250mm I bought a Tokina 400mm without IS it was so heavy and I could not get on with it. So I sold it and bought the SX40 HS mainly for the 35x 840 mm Telephoto zoom.
I've had Canon bridge cameras before so I know what their like. I've had good results and looking at the finished photo's it's only by looking at the Exif file I can tell which camera I used.
No Raw files but I can live without that! And if you're an 'Old Git' like me the Flipout twisty screen is a Godsend. Also the `Burst Rate' is good for aircraft/bird shots.
It fit's in my camera bag along with my SLR and I now feel I can tackle any photographic situation that may arise.
I can recommend this camera
I am especially impressed with the nightshot feature which can produce some very good results with very little available light. I think this may be assisted by the backlit cmos sensor. There are numerous scene functions, and you can perform all the manual functions that you would get on a SLR. The only niggle that I have found is that the mamual focus can be a bit fiddly, as it involves turning of a wheel that also has other functions on it. It is very easy to enable these inadvertently whilst trying to focus.
All in all, if you are looking for a bridge camera, I think this is one of the best.
I have only given 4 stars due to the focussing issues.
The flip out back screen, like my G3, is very useful permitting viewing from front, side and rear and below/above. Large size and very clear as is the viewfinder. Battery life on holiday was good, one recharge after 12 days of daily usage. Slight problem with macro as tried to use it with zoom and it doesn't focus. Read the book and then OK. Hot shoe takes my EZ320 flashgun and works with its zoom/auto settings. HDMI output plugged into my Panasonic TV gives control of camera through TV remote to move through pictures. Overall a very good first impression and would recommend for the telephoto capability and overall performance.
Navigating around all the available functions is made so much easier with the helpful hints, and builds user confidence to try new things.
Photos are clear with the autofocus being spot on, and the colours are natural.
SO glad I chose this camera!
