Re: S9100

I am still angry at the inconsistent focusing in the s9100.  When in focus the IQ is very good.  But half the photos are out of focus, so who cares about the IQ?

The problem is not camera shake.  My hand is steady and the image stabiliser works.

The focus problem seems to occur when zooming above 10X and over 50m.  At shorter distances the focus works.  And the camera lies !  It shows in focus when it is clear it is not.

A second focus problem is inability to focus in low light even with the AF light on.

I have now replaced this camera with the Olympus sz16.  Which has an 24X zoom, can focus at longer distances and in low light.

Shame about this Nikon, it was light fast and had the best LCD screen I've come across.
