That very reason is why I'd love to add a 'do it all lens' to my collection (like the Nikkor 18-200VR or maybe the Tamron 28-300 VC) then when walking around, ... no lens changing, yay! AND I'd get to keep my ultra fast shot to shot times, great viewfinder and almost perfect iso 800 attributes of my DSLR



Your right, i have been using dslr's now for a few years and find it weird using a bridge camera, i too am waiting for the release and review for the new EF-S 18-200 IS should be good

I guess dSLR still the only option, if you want to be a pro photographer:|

Very nice shot,, you know what the more i use it the more i like it,, i just have to post these 2 comparison shots,, one is from my 450D with the 70-300 IS lens set to f/13, and the S100fs was at f/8 no my eyes are not playing tricks on me but my fuji is sharper than my 70-300:? they are both 100% crops, and i still haven't seen any issues with PF, also the manual says that the fuji also has f/11 but i only get f/8 how come that is?

I'm not surprised though, most of the 70-300 DSLR lenses aren't SUPER sharp. My Fuji S6000 is sharper than my Nikkor 70-300VR also. That's the bummer with DSLR's, you can get super sharp, but you REALLY gotta pay for it.

So no PF/CA issues yet? Have you shot any wide angle shots with really contrasty edges? Like the edge of a white building against the sky?


RE Smaller than F8 apertures: On most of these bridge cams you can only get to those higher settings in either the A or M modes

It's a wonderful camera, i will try shooting a picture tomorrow and see if i have any PF, but so far even on telephone wires i see none. Also i shoot in A mode but only get f/8. Besides if the PF does turn up on some weird angle photo who cares, the reviews state that there even in Leaves on trees i have none

F11 might only be available in manual mode then, I wish camera makers would make it available in all modes.

Wow that's very cool, I wonder if Fuji did some changing on the newer versions
