I have the chance of replacing my daughters dead F20 with one of these at a good price new (a bit better then then $399 deal). It all depends on the IQ, the F20 and 30 were always quite wonderful for what they were, how does this new XF1 stack up?

Thanks, I hate when I ask things wrong and have to re-ask, I appreciate your patience.

Although the F20 was one of the best compact cameras in its time that was over six years ago and the XF1 is one of the best compacts today. Compared with the F20 it has better picture quality, better colours, better high ISO, image stabilisation, a wider lens, larger aperture, manual controls, better video and a better LCD.

You can get some idea of its picture quality at these links

It's available in red and brown in addition to black.

The battery life should be similar to the F20's as the F20 didn't have the same battery as the F30.

If the good deal isn't time limited you may like to wait until CES which opens on the 8th of January to see whether Fuji or another camera maker announces a better camera.
