I gave my F30 (virtually the same camera) to my girlfriend after getting a HS50 and comparing the high iso and indoor results (the reason I had kept the F30). Got a F900 for a pocket cam instead and it is definitely an upgrade.

Maybe F900 is an upgrade, but the F550 and F600 I had for a while were such a miserable experience (in quality issues and low light shooting), it put me off buying any more Fuji compact cameras until something changes in Fujifilm attitude concerning their less glamorous products. I ended up going back to F70, despite less zoom and noisier sensor. But at least I could focus reliably again, and not go through the kaleidoscope lens flare effects and poor IS. Not to mention the F200, which is in another league when it comes to making a quality, well rounded and competent camera.
