I can't believe all you HS30 owners neglected to mention how awful the zoom action is. You need two fingers and a thumb to try and move it, not that you can use two fingers and a thumb as the flash protrudes all the way across the manual focus ring and across 50% of the zoom ring leaving less than a fingers width that you can actually use. It will be interesting to see if it loosens up with use although I think you will need sandpaper and a can of WD40 to get this thing moving smoothly.

Joms, you're not helping anyone with statements like the one you made the other day saying the zoom feels no different to that on the X-S1.

I swear my hs30 is smoother. It became after weeks of use.

I will do a few comparisons over the next few days (weather permitting) but I can say right now that the total lack of feel/feedback and coarseness of the zoom has made this a camera I would not want to use. In fact it's so bad I would choose an electronic zoom over it any day of the week.
