My Fujifilm S5000 died today. It seems they don't make them anymore. What would be the best replacement?

Any advice would be appreciated, thanks.

Sorry to hear about your S5000. The Fuji S100fs would be more than a suitable replacement.

I would agree. I has a Fuji S5100 at one point and loved it (it was a serious work horse). Moved on to a Fuji S9100 (needed more pixels)and now Sony A200. I know a person who had aFuji 5000 and just moved to the S100fs and loves it.

thanks for the advice. However i think the S100fs is too expensive for me. The S8100fd looks tempting at half the price. Any thoughts?

Thanks again

S100 @ buydig...$549...Fuji $50 mail-in rebate...free shipping...

Still too much? Then I guess the S8100 would be 2nd best...
