    I'm thinking of buying the new Fuji Finepix S5000 and I'm looking for
    opinions on it, can anyone help me?

    Thanks in advance,

    As always, depends on usage. I use it happily for family and outdoor shots.
    Shoot raw (jpeg compression is too hard imo) and you can get some very good
    results from the camera. The best I have managed is here:
    http://christian.olsentech.net/DSCF2610.jpg just converted from RAW to JPEG,
    no post processing or sharpening applied.

    Good luck with whatever choice you make

    Thanks for your reply Helge.

    Hows the lag on this camera? Can you take action shots?

    Thanks again,

    Best Regards,

    It's not a sports photographer's camera. But using continuous AF in good
    lighting does help. I mostly use it outdoors in daylight for casual shots
    and that works well. Inside it's almost always on the tripod for planned
    shots. The shutter lag is a little above average as far as I've been told,
    but I haven't tried out others. My previous was fixed focus. I suggest you
    check dpreview for a review. Ignore the JPEG complaints. When shooting RAW
    that's irrelevant :)

    Turn off picture preview to reduce shutter lag and you can bracket your
    shots 3-5 frames. I use this with baseball and get good results. Batters
    at the plate multiple frames of their swing, pitchers windup works well
    for me.
