I got the Fujifilm Finepix JZ100.

While it has an impressive set of features, I couldn't get it to focus correctly two out of three times.

The AF had a problem with fur, clothe, and most annoying, with landscapes. With the lens at 4.5mm, wide angle, on a bright sunny day the images were almost always fuzzy. It could have been me being shaky, set for small aperture and slow shutter.

Some pictures were very sharp even hand held at maximum,36mm (200)

When I took pictures of a field of tall dried grass the colors changed significantly. Half were almost a bright Wizard of Oz yellow brick road yellow, rather then a subdued light tan-brown.

The battery died after less then a 100 pictures. I had all the bells and whistles turned on for the last 25 shots.

I returned the camera and got an Olympus E-PM1. I love it, but it cost three times what I paid for the JZ100 and is a larger camera, not really a pocket camera.
Just my two cents worth.

Cheers.
