My buddy, Bernie Heins (some of you know him from the Coolpix accessories we've purchased from him) is the one who got me (kicking and screaming) into DSLR a few years ago, convinced me to get the Fuji S3Pro, and of course chose my first lenses for me (just so HE could play with them! :biggrin. He called to tell me he just got his S5Pro and has convinced me to take a day off work tomorrow and have a play-day!! We're both a pair of gear-loving geeks (his wife just laughs at us and shakes her head) so there's a chance this is going to be a very expensive play-day for Sandi! I want to see how the new model handles my long zooms, especially the 80-400VR. If it improves the speed of focus, I just might have to part with some of my hard earned money (successful week - two very tough deals put to bed). I thank my stars Bernie isn't into sports cars or any other expensive hobbies - I couldn't afford it!!
