Fuji sl100 or the HS50

Hi all,

I am looking at the Fuji HS50exr and the SL1000 and cannot decide between the two.
I want distance to catch the birds as far away as possible and for that the SL1000 seems the clear winner, then reading the specs and seeing some pics from the HS50 it has all become very muddled again.

What I want is:-
clarity of picture
Good picture taking speed
Good auto focus

So my question is simply this:-
Which of the Fuji would be best for me? weighty and size are not a concern and nor is the cost as the difference is minimal.

Thanks in advance for any opinions offered, as I truly cannot decide and am not experienced enough to seperate these two cameras.

I would take the HS50 for anything except zooming during video. The manual zoom is much quicker to operate on the HS50 and that would be crucial for getting that quick shot of a bird.

I have recently pulled a Fuji HS50 out of hibernation. I am quite impressed with the quality it can still deliver in good light, I have also been happy with a couple of raw images taken in poor light.
