My Fuji F30 is dead now but was a wonderful companion. The quality and low light support was excellent for the price I paid 4-5 years back.

Any recommendations on what to replace it with. I liked the X10, too expensive for me.

Appreciate any suggestions you may have.

If you like the larger sensor, then you probably want to try an F200EXR. They can be had pretty cheap these days and they do a much better job in almost every area than the F30fd ever did.

If you can live with a slight drop on pixel peeping ability, then consider the F70EXR. Long reach and decent output in 5mp M4:3 mode.
