I own the S5200 and really like it for sports shots. I know a DSLR with a very good zoom lens would do better, but S5200 is easier to carry around and much cheaper.

Any rumors flying around about its successor?

Is the S6000 the same as the S6500?

Interestingly, Amazon lists it as available in "1 to 3 weeks" their catchphrase for "we don't have it yet". Their price is also $100 higher than Broadway Photo

I've done quite a bit of digging for reviews and specs for the Fujifilm S6000/6500 and at first I thought they were two different cameras, but I coudn't find anybody who sold the S6500 other than British or Korean webpages. And if they have the 6500 they won't have the 6000 or vise versa. IE:

http://www.ukdigital.co.uk/fuji_finepix_s6500.htm

I think it's just a poorly thought out model id. Something to do with the different regions.

Also the specs (as far as I see are identical to the 6000. I was very confused until I read on a webpage (devoted to cameras) and I can't find it now, but it said the two were the same... So if it wasn't hard enough already. Also Fujifilm.com for the US only shows the S6000.

If you find differently let me know, will ya?

Cheers
