Wonder if it's better at high ISO than F200? WB ok? Find it a bit bluish in F200, have to use "custom" a lot of the time.

Definitely better than the F200EXR at high ISO, based on the F750, which has a similar sensor and firmware. But worse at base ISO.

Yes autoWB has been improved since the F200EXR. If anything yellows are too saturated on the F5x0 and F7x0, but Fuji toned them down for the F900.

Have been thinking about a small superzoom, like a Sony HX, maybe it's not so good in weak light. F900 looks better!

Shot correctly, I am certain the F900 is the best travel-cam currently available. Bit of a learning curve, however. Be sure to read KimL's "how to shoot EXR" article.

So maybe I could use ISO 1600 with F900?

Nice to hear WB is fixed, worst problem with F200. Using the three shooting modes, and mainly EXR on the dial. Maybe should read that article again, can't remember it all. Pleased with daylight results, even when I can't see much on the screen, exposure very good.

But how is the F900 AF in low light, really difficult? With most cameras I guess.
