Hello All,
Would you consider a super zoom lens over a good Bridge camera, where image quality is concerned?

More specifically, I am looking to get a Fugifilm X-S1 which goes from 24-640mm and gets very good reviews/feedback; minus initial releases which had a sensor and lens droop issue. We just got a Canon sx-40 and I'm impressed with the image quality in comparison to our former sx-1 and sx-10. The Fugifilm is supposed to be even better given it is a 2/3 sensor camera.

However, I've also considered the new Tamron 18-270mm pzd which would be equivalent to 432mm on my 40d.

---------------

I have my short ranges and quality covered with Tamron 28-75mm 2.8 and Canon 15-85mm but need something for the long end and would like versatility, so the 70-300's are out. 70mm just isn't wide enough as a "do-all" walk around for me.

Thanks,
Ralph

Superzooms will give you superzoom and good quality in good light. My SX20 was very nice for daytime use, but regardless of the lens, a DSLR has a major advantage because of the larger sensor in lower light. ISO 3200 will look MUCH better from a 18-270 than a superzoom because of the sensor in the 40d. Superzooms are great for convenience but you have to consider all of the benefits/drawbacks.
