Swampdweller, I got to hold an S5000 way back in Oct 2003, at a camera store in Calgary (business trip). It certainly is a beauty, but I like the idea of Fuji going to a conventional CCD, their old 2800Z, which my wife has, takes magnificent pictures despite only 2MP. The lower burst number is unfortunate but I think the lower image compression will make up for it in the long run. Right now I am seriously considering this model (or an S7000 if I can save enough money). Mrs. Santa got tapped out last year (especially with a kid starting university).

If you can't wait Camera Canada has some refurbished S5000s for $377 Cdn.
