F31fd Review (p.14): ND4 filter?

I don't understand why Simon have taken the IXUS 850 studio shot at ISO 1600 with ND4 filter attached to the lens? Has any filter been attached to the lens actually? Simon reported F-number 4.5 for this shot, but EXIF says F11. What's right?

Hope, it is simply typo.

So. Have a look at page no. 5 F31fd review
http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/fujifilmf31fd/page5.asp
and page no. 5 F30 review
http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/fujifilmf30/page5.asp
The Portraits of a Young Pretty Lady are the same, or not the same?

I wish they'd have reviewed the F40 instead.

I'm curious why dpreview chose to spend their time and effort to review the F31 when we're all itching to see how the F40 performs.

Here are 3 links from DC Watch Impress in Japan. It's all Japanese. If you want to get an idea of what they're saying, try using the Google translation service.

I have included a review of the F31 as many of the sample shots are identical so that the differences between the two can be seen. The last link is an actual comparison of the two.

This is a review of the F40:

because many of us have waited for months for the f31fd review while f40fd just came out for less than 2 months.
