Re: S5 Discontinued??? Why?

I do not claim to have any insight into what may have been canceled, but at the same time it is possible that Fuji work on new sensor did not work as well as it should have for a new camera.

I do not think Fuji can just keep changing the body and keeping the same sensor forever. I think 6MP is a bit on the small side these days, but there are other compromises that come with SuperCCD - it is a bit (not by much) behind in high ISO as compare to D300, sharpness is less than usual CCD/CMOS, for some reason when shooting vegetation Nikon does a better job. If I could have resolution of 6MP Foveon with colors and DR of Fuji, and electronics of Nikon I would not need to have several SLRs.
