My D2X retails for around £2,700. The S5 is expected to hit the streets in February and if you shop hard you should be able to get one for around the £1,000 mark. The D2X has a lot to recommend it but on this simple test the S5 kills it at high ISO.

Some add hoc testing puts the S5 way ahead of the D2X for apparent noise. I didn't shoot it directly against a D200 but as a very rough figure I would estimate that the noise is about 1 stop better than the D200 - an S5 picture at 3200 looks as good as or better than a D200 at 1600. Whether the S5 is in the same league as the Canon 5D (our current favourite for low light) remains to be seen.

I didn't get the chance to print files in the short time I had the S5 but I think I would be happy squeezing a 10X8 out of a 3200 ISO file without any software noise reduction.

I think that the best digital camera of ALL is the S5 yet!

fuji certainly deserves accolades for its numerous unique features. digital velvia -- i love it! and a unique sensor with promised dynamic range increase. the latter has always been the bane of digital cameras for me for the same reason that i love print film, but slide shooting has never appealed to me. i look forward to reading and learning more about the S5.
