UPS man came with the camera just as I was leaving the house. Fortunately, the battery had a 50% charge, so I popped it in the camera and took it with me. It was not great weather for shooting; gray and sporadically rainy. First impressions: Compared with the Canon SX50, the Fuji is much larger. In fact, it's a little bit bigger than a typical entry-level DSLR with the kit lens. The Fuji's grip is large, grippy and comfortable, with a contoured thumbrest. Buttons and dials fall readily to hand. The EVF is noticeably larger and higher-res than the Canon, though lacking in saturation. The lens' manual zoom feels a little rough and uneven, but IMO is superior to using a little switch. AF seems fairly snappy, although I have yet to present it with a challenging situation. Unfortunately, I don't yet have any real good shots to post... but here's one: If you want to play with a RAW file (RAF converted to DNG), you can download it here: http://rapidshare.com/files/2340230992/DSCF1023.dng When weather and time allows, I'll post some more.
