F series discontinued?
4 months ago

As I predicted not so long ago, it is the end of the road for F series compacts, and probably HS series as well. The F900EXR is listed as discontinued at both Adorama and B&H, pretty good indicator the items are not being made any more (big volume stores find out first). The F1000EXR replacement is available only in japan since February, and it seems it is not coming anywhere else with so many unsold various F models floating around in other retail channels (mainly ebay and discount and overstock outfits). Although less definite, it seems there is no HS continuation as well, I guess Fujifilm got tired of poor sales and probably losing money on them, the S series is cheaper to make and in the end they lose less money with them. Along with F and HS series disappearing (and X30 rumors predicting it will have larger sensor), this forum is heading Casio way.
