First of all to state that DPreview is the best produced site in
the world.

That's a bold statement...

Excellent handling, low noise at high ISO, accurate colour
rendition, very high definition at 12,3 mpix (I know it is
interpolated but it works...), very good dynamic range, battery
life better than expected (about 350 pics from a full charge of
regular 2100 Ni Mh batteries, using external flash).

Seems inline with what others say, except that, the colour rendition is good but a bit poorer than contemporary DSLR, and also the DR, while good, is not really that exceptional. Maybe not without some tweakings with RAW.

Slow CF write speed (a lot of processing), autofocus sometimes iffy
in low light, slow continuous shooting (although for my needs it is
OK - I dont shoot action), auto white balance tricky under
artificial light.

Right on the spot.

WHEN IS DP REVIEW PUBLISHING THE FULL TEST? THE CAMERA IS ALREADY
OUT FOR SOME TIME NOW, AND I'D LOVE TO HAVE A POST PURCHASE
CRITICAL VIEW. Many of you guys could endorse this request even
before buying - WHICH IS MUCH BETTER...

I'm not sure when it's going to be published but sure Phil is working on it. And maybe you could write a post purchase critical view yourself as well.

At the mean time, you may try the followings:

BTW you may try the Fuji DSLR forum ( http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/forum.asp?forum=1020 ).

Have a nice day!
