The Fujifilm HS50 IQ is about 6 years of technical development better than the IQ of the Fujifilm S100fs. My S100fs is collecting dust on the shelf. I offer you mine for let's say $1200,- Is it a deal?

You tell us how bad the S100fs is then offer to sell it for $1200. LOL!. I have never seen an image from a HS series that comes close to the S100fs at base ISO. 6 years of development has led to tinier sensors with longer focal lengths and better high ISO performance. Unfortunately IQ at high ISO is good for nothing on these cameras and they still need to be shot in lots of light at long focal lengths. So guess what, the S100fs still trumps them despite its flaws. IQ is an afterthought for a community that accepts blurry, websized, camera phone images as great artistic content. Fabulous advancement.

PS: I'll give you $200 for you crap s100fs.

Apologies if my lack of photographic knowledge is catching.

The Fujifilm S100fs is not crap. In those days it was a great camera up to ISO 200. I still can remember the strenuous  efforts the DSLR people made in this Fuji forum to put the S100fs down. Later on I was able to compare the camera with the Fuji cameras that came later. My conclusion was and is that the F100fs was a nice camera but not a exceptional good camera. The S200 exr was about in the same league. So I don't understand the hype about the S100 fs at all. I didn't sell the S100 fs for the hype price I asked for it. Why is that?
