I truly wonder how much longer people are going to hang on to this camera with all the new technology out. My one and only choice for replacement would be the Panasonic G1. The downsides have pretty much been remedied by now: Auto WB has been improved since launch, new lenses have been announced, and no video (who cares). It's about the most perfect camera I can think of!
I wonder about that too....I already know my next camera will be a DSLR. I really like this camera but it has its limits on what I want to take photos of. Indoor springboard diving and swimming. Out side it is fine. Would like a zoom lens too...so the only option for me is DSLR....I plan to get the Nikon D90.
I'll probably be hanging on to my Fuji a little longer. Many a time have I been tempted to switch to the DSLR world, but really you know I've got to say I'm happy with this camera. It doesn't take the cleanest images at high ISOs (given the competition now), but the versatility of its lens is a good compromise. AA batteries are so handy and having RAW is a scream. My only lament is that its a little heavy. I've learned to deal with that.
