As a very disappointed owner of a S100FS (which cost over $800 new when it came out) and two other Fuji digital cameras I would caution against too much enthusiasm. The S100FS was heavily promoted as a superb bridge camera but is full of flaws: noise in shadowy areas of the picture, a lack of true manual focus, purple fringing in high contrast images and a display that has lines in it when it gets slightly warm. I have a pro photographer friend that also owns a S100FS with the same results. I'm not saying this new Fuji isn't a great camera, only buyer beware!!
