I have yet to see a good sample from the Fuji at the longer end. Your sample was shot at only 158mm. Also the K5 is weatherproof. Not to knock the Fuji but it doesn't really compare to the K5 in IQ and features but the S1 has it's place and I'm glad you're happy with it. I looked at getting one but wouldn't have been satisfied with the softness at the longer end which is what I wanted it for. Love my X10 but it only reaches to 112mm.

In addition to what was said in the above post, are you saying the Fuji sample I posted soft? Myself, I am particularly impressed by the lens being shot at its longest end and wide open........
