G15 will give you a better pic when zoom is not needed.

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!).
It should do autofocus in video also.
F1.8 - f2.8 is amazing for a small camera. Your old kit lens was f3.5 - f5.6.
The digic 5 and hs system and 12800 ISO makes it extremely effective in low light.
You can't even buy an adjustable f1.8 lens for DSLR seperately. They only come in prime lenses. A Canon f2.8 lens 18-55 is $1000.
Of course they are not the same, but still.....
Also, low number f gives you most bokeh for that professional look. Google f1.8 bokeh images.
