I have the SX500 with a 30x zoom was thinking of upgrading to the SX530 which has a stronger zoom50x is this a good decision or would the diference in the zooms not make that much difference. I have read it is slower to focus.

Going from a super zoom to a super duper zoom is only an upgrade if you had found the super zoom to be too short. That seems unlikely unless you are shooting birds. In designing a lens with a hyper-broad range of focal length necessitates some compromises in image quality. Better to just move a bit closer to your subject using a lens that is designed to deal with a more specific focal length range.
What at do you shoot? Maybe you'd like a camera with a bigger sensor, and/or a wider aperture. Maybe an interchangeable lens camera?

Thank you for your reply. I usually take photos of animals, birds etc. I am not really familiar with this camera I used to use a SLR but it was not digital it used film and it broke. My husband got this for me as a gift he is not camera wise and did not realize the lens could not be changed. So I guess I will make do. Thanks again for your kind reply
