I just saw the sample photos on fuji.com. At 100% view there is evident and visible noise at ISO 100 (the grass on the lower left corner in the lion's picture is very grainy and does not seem like ISO 100 to me). And some parts of the photos are not focused - see the buffalo's left horn (on the right side of the photo). Personally I expected more form this larger sensor. At full screen, the pictures look good though.
Looks promising. I am personally not interested in the GPS so that does not bother me. If they manage to produce good IQ, has effective image stabilization for the long zoom, and has good battery life, I will buy it.
I like the review, but cannot see how the Nikon can get a recommendation award taking into consideration that the whole point of these cameras is having long zooms, and according to the image stabilization test of the Nikon, only 20% of the shots at full telephoto are sharp. If the cameras in this article require long zoom, but the Nikon cannot take sharp pictures with its zoom, why would you recommend it and why would people who need to use the zoom buy it?
