Wow, the picture quality really impresses me. I read the other review on the Fuji HS30 on this board, and I was disappointed by the image quality.Even in the jpeg compressed pictures on the website show clear visible chromatic failures . To me, the HS 30 is just another useless feature packed toy. But the image quality X-S1 looks great . It really takes highly usable ( mean printable) pictures over the whole zoom range .
Good review / great camera
