By the way, if you liked the F20 so much you might want to pick up a Fujifilm F40fd second hand as a secondary cam (was going cheap years ago so should be very, very cheap now). The F40fd aka F45fd was the successor model to the F20.

It'll take the dead F20's xD cards and battery and can also take SDHC cards after a firmware update.

I'd guess people would still be wanting alot more $ for the F31fd than the F40fd because of its reputation.

There was an F50fd model but its colour quality wasn't up to the F40fd's (that was improved over the F20/30/31) although it did add manual controls.

Thanks, something to consider, but I wonder if this would rival the XF1

The XF1 is not the pinnacle of compact cameras.  I can say that after a few months of shooting it extensively.
