In terms of quality, which lens (SX50 or G15) is going to give me better results in varying conditions (low light included)? Everyone seems to be nuts about the lens on the G15, but I don't hear the same on the SX50 except for the super long zoom. While the zoom is a cool feature, I probably wouldn't use it enough to be the deciding factor between the two. I like the auto focus and zoom during HD video on the SX50, but I'm not sure if I'll think that camera is too big on a daily basis.
I need a camera I take out quickly, not monkey with a bunch of buttons, and take a picture fast while my kids are doing something *now* before they move on. They are 1 and 2 yrs old, so I usually only get one shot (and miss!).
