Hi Mike and Brian, for what it's worth I think your Redstart and Bee eater pics are about as good as it gets with SX50... yes they a tad on the soft side but given all the other advantages that the camera offers they certainly are good enough for nice record shots. I'm getting similar quality pics so am now concentrating on developing my speed and skill at rapid deployment of the camera, getting the record shots in the bag to leave me free to enjoy and study the birds behaviour.
Thanks for sharing.
