Well, my Canon Powershot S1IS days are numbered. I have a couple stuck pixels after 1.5 years with the camera. I'm tired of playing with my shots to compensate. So... I took the plunge and purchased the Fujifilm S9000 9MP camera. I don't want to go DSLR due to my lack of lenses. (aka none). So... I figure the S9000 will be exactly what I need. A near DSLR camera that is a couple hundred cheaper than the entry DSLR cameras.
