    I'm definitely considering a change of deoderant lol!

    Surely these new Fujis are bread and butter discussion material for
    rec.photo.digital? But my post is, as far as I can see, the only one on the
    subject today...

    Very curious, or has Fuji got it wrong?

    The F700 SR-equipped model was announced about 6 months ago, but where is
    it?

    And what's wrong with the HR SuperCCD anyway?

    Ther are rumors floating around (from other dealers during some dealer to
    dealer chit-chat) that the 700 was built to retail at almost cost thus they
    are holding back looking for the yen to change and make it profitable.
    Seems like the longer you hold on , the more you lose, so we didn't put much
    credence in the theory. So far none of the dozen ordered have a shipper. We
    sold Fuji and never got one back. I did a Golf tournament with one.Can't say
    enough good things about them.

    Those photos are terrible indeed. They are so full fo JPEG artifacts it is not
    even funny. If this is really what that new camera produces, they are in for a
    rough ride.
