As I said at the time of launch of this camera, the spec's all well and good, but what counts is how it performs. Well according to this week's AP, it performs rather well, and is a serious contender against low-end dSLRs. Fuji seem to have managed to get an excellent result from a tiny, densely-populated sensor even at relatively high ISO settings. Not a perfect camera, due mainly to speed issues, but definately a decent step forward in technology. So well done Fuji.
