I have just purchased the S1000fd, sight unseen, liked the review. I will not get my Camera till April. With the discound i got plus the Fuji Rebate I saved over $60.
I was looking for a camera that filled the gap between my S6000 and my S5000, I liked the S700, but felt the 1000 would be a nice asset.
I hope my gut feeling proves right. Also like the SD and XD card slot on the 1000. Comments appreciated.
