Browsing over to the Nikon Japan site I noticed that they have updated their Coolpix 950 page and also added the first official samples (only three), I've put the thumbnails and the exposure information as extracted from the original image files using Thumber 2.5.

One interesting thing to note here, the firmware version between the image taken on 8/Jan/99 and 13/Jan/99 has changed, proof if any were needed that Nikon are still trying to get the firmware "just right". Also, the Nikon samples page doesn't mention the EV compensation values.
