Maybe I had a bad copy but the S100fs was the worst camera I have ever owned, I wanted to like it, it  was good on paper but I sold it. Massive purple and green fringing and a control system from hell. Reset to defaults every time you shut camera off - it was a dog.

The fringing was horrific in early samples of the camera. DPReview has to expand their scale just to document it.

But there are rumours that later copies were better. Never saw proof, but in RAW you could deal with it adequately.

Of course, you needed a lot of patience to shoot it in RAW, unlike an HS50, which is very fast shooting RAW+JPEG with a modern SD card.
