Monarch Butterfly
I like to photograph the butterflies on our backyard flowers.

Those are very nice. I considered that camera before finally going to a dslr. I wish Fuji had stayed on that path and used that sensor and possibly found a way to put a 20x or more lens on it. For a non dslr I think it was the best in it's class. What ISO abilities does it have in your opinion. Is it good in low light at 400 or 800 as far as IQ ?

Hey Eric,

The IQ is great for a point and shoot (2/3 sensor) and even at 400 & 800 with a small amount of noise reduction not bad considering. It is a great carry one camera and do everything,, but still doesn't replace my old Canon XT when I want best quality images.....

Yeah, but it's not meant to replace a dslr, and yet it has the IQ to keep up with them. My only reason for not buying one is quite simply 14x when I want 25 or 30. Most shots I've seen from this camera are very good IQ wise. I think if you only need this amount of magnification there is no need to go dslr.
