X-S1: What should I know before buying?

This is what I know:

It came out more than 1 year ago.

Its sensor is similar to the X10's which I own and like.

It has a droopy lens that may or may not be fixed.

It used to produce orbs. But new copies do not.

Competitors include the Panasonic PZ200, Fujifilm HS30, HS50, Canon SX 50, Nikon P510, among others.

It is selling for about $650. Which is not too much of a discount to when it was first introduced.

Is there anything else I should know before Itake the plunge? I'm mainly interested in a longer reach to supplement my X10, and I'm happy with the other characteristics it shares with the X10. Any soon to be expected replacement models, or price drops, I'm not in a great hurry.
