Fuji adds new S9100 DSLR like camera to their line-up.  This is a spruced up S9000 from last year, with a few new features.  Will this be an entry level DSLR-like quality camera?  The old model wasn't bad! If this model does a better job at high ISO it could be a bargain.   $599 for camera and big zoom lens is a good price.

Olympus today released details for a whole bundle of new cameras, including a new look SP-510 with ISO 4000! I'll have to see what that sample looks like.  It'll be at a lower res than normal, but you can get up to 1600 at full res.  Looks like they're still using the same zoom lens as 4 years ago.
