I have used bridge or super zooms cameras with satisfying results for travel, wildlife and dinghy racing for many years using: Panasonic Z5, Nikon 8800, Z18, Z38 and now Canon SX50. Canon SX50 is good given small sensor but been also very pleased with Panasonics, so reckon little to choose between them. Add my Nikon 1.7 ED TC to the SX50 and I get a surprising usable 2040mm: giving higher subject clarity than a 5d mkII and a Sigma 150-500mm! Yet to test against my new Sony A7R with Sigma 150-500mm, or even an ancient Tamron 500SP mirror (+2x SP).
