More punch per megapixel than anything else out there!

Summary: 2015 and still kicking but! Outstanding camera! Color, dynamic range, and film simulation modes all add up to a powerful combination. Bright optical view finder. Can use either AFD or AFS lenses. VR still functions. AIS lenses will meter.
Summary: The Fujifilm Finepix S 5 Pro is all I expected it to be and more. It is much more than a Nikon D200 camera with a Fujifilm sensor, working well with both Nikon and Sigma lenses. This camera provides at least 2 to 3 ways to accomplish most tasks and you can tailor controls and settings to suit your...
Summary: I finally bought the S5 Pro after a long wait for the price to drop, i am the owner of Fuji S2, S3 pro for a long time and still..I have no doubt that S5 will exceed the previous models. Indeed it is a much better camera. The build is nicely solid, fast respond, heavy and feel great in my hands.
The best quality for the least money of any professional camera

Summary: I have owned the S-2 S-3 and have now owned the S-5 since it was released, I think in 2006. The colors,dynamic range and tonality were far Superior to any pro camera that would cost twice the money and still they lagged behind the quality curve( the S-5 is not a fast camera).
Summary: I have had the S5 pro for a little over a year. I have seen side-by-side results compared with Nikon D200 and D300 and Canon 12.1's and the Olympus flagship. Shooting in RAW the Fuji is just as sharp as any 10 to 12 megapixel camera out there. I don't like the less sharp standard settings.
Summary: I got exactly what I was expecting with camera and have to agree with the reviewer above. The camera renders skin wonderfully. In fact, with the exception of the D3, I wouldn't trade it for any other F-mount camera.
Summary: This review is based on my real-world experience with the Fuji S5 Pro and not number crunching, or high-tech analyzing. I've owned a Nikon D200 since they first appeared and absolutely enjoyed every minute of researching, learning, and shooting.
Summary: I have a Nikon D200 already but after reading about this camera I decided to buy it. I am not sorry. First off, this is not the camera for you if you need to shoot high speed action shots (more than 3 FPS). This camera does one thing very well..
