Bigger is better these days, so Fujifilm slapped a whopping 42x zoom lens (24-1000mm) onto the HS50EXR, up from the 30x lens used in the past few generations.
The sexiest feature is still the lens barrel—a mechanical, twist-barrel zoom mechanism with a smooth focus ring, both with a ridged, grippy texture. It's the closest you'll get to true DSLR feel in a superzoom.
The other big change is the fully articulating LCD.
|Optical Zoom||42 x|
|Digital Zoom||84 x|
|Viewfinder Coverage||100 %|
|Display Type||articulated touchscreen LCD|
