HUSQVARNA 550 XP®
Light, powerful, nimble. The auto-tune really works well, too. For this kind of weight and power, this saw is very versatile. I have had the 20" bar fully buried in pine, and the saw handled it without issue - full RPMs.
The handles are very well isolated from vibration as well. Starts easily, sips gas. I don't think you can find a better 50cc saw at any price.
