So you didn't get to really use them and print photos to compare? I just recently exhanged my S3 for the Fuji S6000, the S3 had good image quality, their both about the same resolution so both would produce really similar prints. I exchanged though for features and 'ease of use'.
sidenote: Comparing on the computer screen only so far, the I like the way the Fuji's pics look better, but that may just be individual taste.
Here is the thread to my first impressions.
Best wishes and happy hunting,
