A larger lcd, manual exposure modes, a bit more telephoto, and AA's would swing my vote in the direction of the Fuji.

I'm sure they both take very good quality pictures, but I have to agree with Phil on the Fuji. Besides the features Phil mentioned...The E550 has 6 MP resolution vs. 5 MP for the 5200, and can achieve a 12 MP interpolated resolution. The E550 is ISO 800 capable (vs. ISO 400) for better low light pics, and uses AA batteries as opposed to the Nikon's propriatary Lithium-Ion battery.

Thank you 'the Hun' for your detailed opinion. I appreciate the informative feedback. I will probably go with the Fuji.

Would anybody else like to weigh in?
