Fujifilm FinePix A500 Zoom review

I recently got my hands on the A500, and I'm very disappointed by it's perfomance.
The Finepix A500 is one of the most basic entry level digicams on the market.
And entry level here means also very entry level performance:

Some pros:

Low price, good battery life

Cons:

Ultra clumsy controls, specially the zoom button, very poor dynamic range, low light performance is a real shame, very often out of focus, annoying shutter lag, IQ overall doesn't life up to the Fujifilm standards, often very noisy images/unbalanced noise reduction.
Ancient low resolution Movie mode without sound

Problems:

Not yet
