I'm new to this forum. I just wanted to add to people's comments on the problem with the S9500's command dial.
I bought my unit in September 2005. I brought it to China on a holiday in April 2006 and the command dial died on me there. It was still under warranty, but I had to wait for 2 months before Fuji Malaysia gave it back to me. And now less than 6 months after the repair, the command dial died again. I'm not sure if I can afford to fix it.
