Default Fujifilm FinePix S5 Pro dSLR -- go or no-go?

I'd ask this on the Fuji forum but it's pretty dead there, so I'll ask here: I see a retailer selling the Fujifilm FinePix S5 Pro (body only) for a very low price. Aha, something for my Nikon lenses! But does anyone here have an opinion of its use and problems? Many thanks!

EDIT:

Oh, I forget to mention the low price: about US$45 new, from two retailers. Is it worth it?

OK, forget it, it's a fake-out. Here is the Google Shopping page that grabbed me. All about that nice new Fuji S5 at incredible prices, eh? So I click to buy... and each of the three links to retailers goes to pages selling wideangle strap-ons, NOT the camera body. Bugger all. This is a pretty preposterous bait-and-switch. Sorry if I got any of you needlessly excited.
