The best cheap alternative to XF1 is used (or new old stock) F200EXR. In my opinion best F series Fuji ever, and I used or tried most all of them since F10. F40 is pretty good for its time, but 3x zoom seems limiting today compared to F200. F50 is very noisy at ISO 400 and above and best avoided. F200 also works with xD cards.<

Joel,

I agree (and so apparently does Kim L) that the F200 is about the best of the whole F series. I still have and use mine (sometimes). That being said, I would still get the much newer F770. It starts at 25mm and goes all the way up to 500mm. And it is very cheap now, at least in Japan, going for well under US$200. It shoots in raw too. I got one as a 'pocket birder' and use it once a week when going to KGU, where there are often fowl on the college pond.
