Summary: I purchased this camera from employee discount for $900. When I got the camera it wouldn't work. After shooting one image, camera got locked up. shutter wouldn't come back down, nor switch off. I had to pull out the battery to reset. that's not the worst part, Returning back to fujifilm was so much hassle that I had call my AMEX to dispute the charges to get my full refund back. Never again will I buy fujifilm.
Excerpt: The best DSLR I''ve owned to date. Started off with Nikon D50, then progressed to D60 then Fuji S3 Pro. The S5 produces the best colour saturation in digital format that I''ve seen. also with the faster shutter speeds and extended ISO range it is great for wildlife and sports photography. Moving from nion to Fuji means I can still use my Nikon an Sigma Nikon-fit lenses.
