Camera shopping

Has anyone used the Canon Powershot SX50 HS, and if so, what do you think of it? I’m looking for a reasonably priced camera with a good zoom lens. I don’t need a fancy pants DSLR camera, just one that’s  professional, and takes clear pictures from different distances. I’ve tried this one out in the store, and I seems like it could be the one.

 

Any feedback would be great,

Thanks a lot.
