I now have the canon s1; am considering buying either the s3 or the fuji s 9000; really interested in available light photography; would like to see some iso 400/800 samples without flash from the s3; i know that a dslr is probably the best choice for low-lite photos but am rather biased against dslrs and would like a high end prosumer instead

The S3 IS isn't exactly that great for available light photography. The IS is pretty much useless on long exposures and the lens is only F/2.7 at wide and F/3.5 at tele.

Even my cheap old SLR with F/2.0 lens doubles the effective speed. There is an ISO 1600 film available and to match this with F/2.7, you'll need about ISO 3200.
