Looks interesting. It'll be interesting to see the focusing speed and
the noise on a higher resolution sensor than Fuji had on their older
models. If the street price is around $400 it could be a winner. But
we've seen so many instances of new super-zoom P&S cameras coming up far
short when compared to D-SLRs, I'm not holding my breath on this one.
One very bad sign on this camera is that it uses AA batteries.

We've discussed this before, there is no magic.
