Yes. But how often do people take pictures at ISO 6400. It compromises image quality for ALL cameras. I just saw a great interview with Joel Grimes where he said he tries to stay below ISO 400.

That's great for Joel. It is meaningless advice for people who do shoot at ISO6400. That ISO value was put on the camera to be used. Further, OLDER X cameras COULD shoot at ISO6400 and not produce wax figures. Your spin helps protect this exceedingly poor decision from Fujiilm.

I'll say it again.  If you are bothered by it, and plan on shooting a lot of jpegs at ISO 6400 don't buy the camera.  However, for me it is something I can live with.  All cameras and life for that matter is a series of compromises.  I like the Fuji compromises better than I like most other brand compromises.  If I didn't I'd be carrying a different camera around.
