The F10 is top of my shortlist, especially after reading the enthusiasm of others here - especially Andme !

It scores highly with me because I liketo shoot without
flash inmuseums & churches but of course I take outside shots and do wonder if I will be able to see withthe LCD in bright sunlight.

I ama point and shooter, neverfiddlewith the images and only viewthem on my PC.

Because I have been spoilt by a 6* zoom on my Finepix 2800 I am also consideringthese:-

Nikon Coolpix 4800
Panasonic LZ2
Ricoh Caprio R2/R1V

I've had mine a bit under a month, I love it. This missing optical viewfinder is not as much of an issue for me as it may be for other people. I took it out today to snap some pics at the memorial day parade in town, and subjected it to full sunlight to test the LCD. It does get hard to read color and focus in bright sunlight, but It's always hard for me to trustany LCD for those. I could easily distinguish what was in frame, even with the sunlight directly on the LCD. Everybody's eyes are different though, if you have a hard time focusing where there is high contrast you may look to a camera that has the optical viewfinder. I did not even need the "gain up" on the LCD to use the camera. I am very happy with the battery life, though I normally shy away from compacts that don't take AA's. It has the AF assist lamp that Steve so craves. Shot to shot, shutter delay, and start up to first shot are super fast. The zoom is only average- 3x. The menu is a bit hard to navigate, but Fuji puts most things I mess with in the f-menu. That is real easy to understand.

There is no F10 review out, isn´t it?

I´d like to see the exposure compensation in the "F" menu, but everybody has another wish for "F" I sure.

Configurable "F" would be a winner!

I reallydislike "reviews" like that. This is the text of a prospectus and no review in terms of a pro-con report were one is able to benefit from.

I've had my F10 3 weeks now. Very pleased, but there are issues - work within them and it produces amazing results:
Manual setting
Set ISO yourself, and use even the 1600 one
Keep white balance on auto except for flash - set to daylight
Avoid the chrome setting except in dull, low contrast settings.
See my web pages

Here's a sample:

Thanks everyone for their comments and interest.

Howard you samples look really great, have you tried using it indoors without the flash ?

As you are a F10 user, what is the shutter lag like?

my wife gets annoyed with our current camera over this.

I'm looking for an good quality point & shoot which can be set on auto with virtually no shutter lag

i have been considering the Casio Z750 aswell

How good is the flash as from comments i have seen, it seems to cover a long distance

Hey does the F0 fit intoa pocket pretty easily? Or is it too big? It seems too big, but I could be wrong.
