    Anyone tempted by this one? Fuji200EXR.

    Mentioned this earlier in the month...think I might go for it...

    http://www.photographyblog.com/revie...200exr_review/

    Or what does anyone else think? I remember K1W1 raving about a Ricoh model?

    Thoughts?

    I think that it is probably a nice compact, but the review definitely didn't sell me on it. With the NX and other new CMOS based compacts i think the Fuji is a welcome progression, but the CMOS based ones seem more promising to me, especially with the EXR dropping an image down to 6mp just to get better dynamic range or slightly improved noise control (vs the 12mp image). Also the manual controls on it although apparently better than the 100d seem too limited, 2 aperture settings to chose from in AP or M mode? wtf?!

    because it was discussed once before by some of the members as a backup p&s for their main camera. As was the ricoh model.

    Also, because Nikon don't offer any compacts to compliment their dSLR range. You know, good ones i mean.

    Incidentally it'd be interesting to see a CMOS censor in something with the build/make and design of the Panasonic Lumix LX3, i reckon it'd make for a very highly compelling offering.

    Because:
    1. DSLR owner still needs a portable compact.

    EDIT: OKAY I REPHRASED IT.

    Because:
    1. DSLR owners still need good portable compacts.
    2. Nikon makes shitty compacts.
    3. Some Nikon DSLR users are too lazy to venture out of home.

    1. Then they can navigate over to that specific forum.
    2. All well and dandy, but this IS the DSLR forum, no?

    That's my opinion as well. It's the reason we have these separate forums. But I'll let it drop.

    OK...thanks everyone...but any other thoughts on a suitable compact that would substitute my beloved Nikon D80 and collection of lenses.

    I want high quality shots up to iso 800, a zoon from 15mm to 300mm, the same DOF as that provided by my fast lenses and a vertical hand grip, no shutter lag, RAW capture and at least 9 auto focus points...

    Nikon, I have laid the gauntlet for you to surprise me with the compact aforementioned...oh, and not a penny over 300.
