Default Comparing Nikon L810 vs Fujifilm S4500

I am thinking of buying either the nikon or the Fujifilm because of the zoom. In comparing the spec, the Nikon is slightly on top, not much. However, I am more interested in actual experience, or hands on reivew. Unfortunately, both are too new to have any review. Anybody seen a review or happened to have play of both camera?

I am NOT a professional photographer. I am just an average user, as long as the picture looks sharp, I would be happy. I have seen some review about the picture quality

1) Nikon: sometimes is blurry (OMG! a Nikon?)
2) Fujifilm: Judge from the history, you got what you paid for (not sure how to interprete that wrt picture quality)

$wise, both are about $197 from Amazon.com

Again, sharp picture is what I am looking for. and, in the end, if both are not good, then suggest other superzoom point and shoot camera in the same price range.

Most cameras like this don't do well with sharpness in the longest focal length. For $197 you are expecting a lot more than what that would buy. Not the answer you are looking for but it really comes down to your own findings and not really the opinions of others. I do look on PBase to see examples posted of a camera I am considering to buy a camera. Right now I see point of diminishing returns on what has been coming out. It does cost more but I find the Canon SX HS40 to be good to excellent for the type of camera it is.
