    Was curious if anyone had tested the Fuji Pro S5, I would be interested in hearing some reviews or maybe some test shots. Since I prefer the Nikon bodies (I just like the way it feels in my hands compared to others bodies like the canon) but with the Nikons I feel there is a bit too much noise on the higher ISO so I am curious about the Fuji sensor since I have read good things.

    I've heard, but have not seen it, that ISO 3200 looks stellar on it.

    Played with it at Imaging USA and almost fell head over heals. Great camera... Wish I had stuff to show you, but I controlled myself and don't have one (yet.) Have you played around on DPreview yet? I'm not sure if they've got a review posted already...

    I have the S2 and if it is a continued improvment on that platform, it must be spectacular.

    I got my hands on one at the PPANJ convention in Atlantic City. All around great camera. A friend of mine just got one and is still learning his way around the UI.

    I haven't used one but I have a question. Since it is built on the Nikon D200 body and costs more than a D200, why not buy a D200?

    I am led to believe the noise control on the S5 is far better than the D200.

    The CCD tech. of Fiji is much better, Aside from the honeycomb pixels which limit artifacting and noice here are some of the other reasons.

    I have an S2 that is almost 5 yeard old and it can still run circles around my D70 and my friends D200 as far as quality goes.
