Default Fuji S1800 or Canon SX120?

Which one has better image quality, the Fuji S1800 or Canon SX120.

For a few reasons I've held off buying a new camera, but I'm ready now. The Fuji S1800 attracts my eyes because it has 12MP, 18x zoom, and a very low price ($180 with a possible $50 rebate from Fuji for recycling my old Fuji camera).

The SX120 was my choice before, and therefore I'd like to know if this newer S1800 can outperform it in picture quality.

The Canon SX-120 is the better camera. Now if you could find a used Fuji S-8000 or S-8100 that had 18X optical zoom that would make the comparison a whole different equation.

I was hoping as the successor of the S1500, this will be better. Would the image quality of the S-1800 come close to the SX120?

Surely there are more features on the Fuji S-1800, but the image quality is still a bit behind the Canon SX-120. Perhaps the additional features and zoom are worth more to you.

I think I can live with "a bit" behind image quality.

I have decided, I'll buy the S1800, hopefully this afternoon.

Chengbin-

Congratulations on your camera decision. I think you will really like the Fuji S-1800. Post some photos when you have a chance and have a great weekend.
