Steve managed to get his hands on one of the first Fuji MX2900's, he's written a user review of the camera which is officially launched today (17th August) @ MSRP of $899. Here's what he says:

"Even though it's not as speedy as some of the other 2.3Mpixel cameras we've tested, it's still a winner. I especially liked the flash hot shoe feature which lets you add a more powerful bounce flash on the camera. The builtin flash is OK but it isn't very powerful and it's prone to redeye problems because it is mounted so close to the lens. At least with the hot shoe you now have the alternative of adding any flash unit you want. "
