Re: S100FS - IQ and value. Still a good digicam ?

The FZ50 has probably
best IQ in the bunch because of it's larger sensor size, though still
not as sharp and noise free as the s100fs. It's cost/age/wide angle
also turn me off.

I've had my FZ50 for nearly a year and a half and nothing has come along since that I would trade it for. The "noise noise noise" is overblown overblown overblown IMO, and I can easily deal with it when and if I have to. Purple fringing? What is that? By the way, nothing utterly ruins a photo for me like seeing purple edges on everything, and trees that grow into a purple fog near the sky. My FZ50 doesn't give me that problem at all.

That's just my opinion of course, but seriously, I would not trade my FZ50 at 18 mos. of age for a brand new s100fs. Anyone want to try me? Answer is 'no thanks.'
