Summary: Much improved over the previous version S3 Pro in terms of ease of use. The larger display screen is nice and the menu is much improved. Although the AA batteries of the previous version had its advantages, I prefer the lithion ion battery system of this version.
Summary: I have owned the Nikon D70, D200 and currently still have the D80, D300 and Fuji S5. If low light photography is your cup of tea...then this is a very good camera. It beats the D70, D80 and D200 (anything over ISO 800 on these cameras are pretty much useless).
Excerpt: A must to get with the Fujifilm S5 Pro is the Nikon MB-D200 power supply grip. Besides it making the camera look more massive & professional it gives the Fuji FinePix S5 Pro a verticle shutter release and the ability to use the more common AA NiMh batteries which last quite a long time with 6 in...
The Fuji s5 Pro isn't merely the D200's artistic bohemian brother

Summary: Ive owned the D200, and controls and build aside, these are two different cameras. Surprisingly, this camera's nearest competitor isnt the Nikon D200 - it is the Canon 5D. Of course, the Canon clearly bests the s5 on resolution as it should. But that's it.
Summary: So far, so good. Beautiful color, the film profiles are good, and useful. Some bugs need to be worked out, like the auto ISO, which works (even though it shouldn't) in manual mode, but mostly it retains the strengths of the D200 (handling, quality) and adds Fuji's image quality.
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.
Excerpt: This DSLR camera was over £1000 when it first came on the market. Now it is under £500 and it is a bargin of a DSLR for the money. It shares a body with the Nikon D200. Because of this it can be used with Nikon Lens' and D200 accessories.
Pros: Very good value now that it costs under £500
Summary: This camera is based on the Nikon D200. A very solid pro body with all functions perfectly to hand. Skin tone is perfect in most lighting conditions. Many reviewers have classed this as the ideal portrait or wedding camera.
Summary: had been using S3pro for the last 3 years, Some exposure problems was solved, good tonal range, faithful colors, battery life was short, burst rate 3 frames is terrible. autofocus poor ,very slow especially AFS 80-200 2.8ED.
