Default Fuji - F601Z or 6900Z?

hi!

i've read the specs of both, steve's conclusions and watched the sample pics/videos and i still can't decide which one i should buy...

is the 6900Z really that better? i mean it looks much more professional but when i compare the features of the cams they're almost the same. and i can't tell which one of the two produces the less grainy pics.

i'm looking for a cam with manual exposure, good macro abilty, depth of field blur (although none of those 2 seems to be able to do that), least grainy pics and the abilty for professional use - could you please tell me which cam of the 2 meets these requirements best? i'm so confused...

Hi
The 6900Z is the old-generation fuji model, replaced by the Finepix S602.
The F601 and the S602 were released at the same period I think.
So the F601 has new generation CCD, smallest zoom and improved EVF vs the 6900. But this the 6900 you an older, but one step up.
If you don't need the extra functionalities of 6900 (6x zoom) go with F601, newer.
If you need both functionallities and new stuff, go with S602, I think you may find it at the same price than a factory sealed 6900.

well the problem is that i can afford F601 or 6900Z - F601 for 600 and 6900Z for 700
S602 is more than i can afford => 820

is the 6x zoom the only extra functionality of the 6900Z?

what about the focus and exposure abilities? are the ones of the 6900 MUCH better than that of the F601?
