    http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/fujifilms5pro/. what do you think about this camera? I'm curious if any of you nikonists would go with this instead of a nikon considering you would have to change the body and keep the lenses.

    Looks pretty good to me at $1K ~ $1.2K:


    • Improved Super CCD SR Pro features an optimised low-pass filter to reduce moirĂ©
    • Newly developed RP Processor Pro features two cycles of noise reduction with a claimed reduction in noise at higher sensitivities (camera now allows shooting at ISO 3200)
    • Users can now choose from up to six preset Dynamic Range settings between 100% and 400%
    • Three new variations of the original film simulation mode (F1) have been added (five modes in total)
    • Improved Nikon lens compatability (including manual focus AI lenses)
    • RAW+ jpeg (4,256 x 2,848 pixels, 3,024 x 2,016 pixels, 2,304 x 1,536 pixels) dual-save mode
    • Robust lightweight magnesium-alloy body with moisture- and dust-proof seals
    • Durable shutter unit stands up to approximately 100,000 cycles
    • Adoption of high-precision i-TTL flash control
    • 11-point AF sensor with faster autofocusing than the FinePix S3 Pro
    • Supports 1/3, 1/2, and 1 stop lens aperture control
    • Shutter speed 30 sec. to 1/8000 sec, maximum flash sync speed of 1/250 sec.
    • 3 levels of custom function locking with password protection
    • 2.5 inch LCD with 235,000 pixels, gives 100% frame coverage.
    • Colour and monochromatic 30 seconds live view function to check focusing

    i've read the specifications many times and yes i was thinking of getting one but my question is, beside the price is there any other reason not to get a nikon? since i saw Nikon F mount written on it my confidence in it decreased suddenly, i mean why not get the real deal?

    I had one. I liked it. If I was made of money, I'd have kept it. AF was slow sometimes, and the menu was a little weird.. but I didn't buy it for sports and didn't allow much time to get used to it. I regret getting rid of it :(
