I also have a Fujifilm F31fd as a backup. It sits in my tankbag more or less permanently attached to the shim of my tripod, so I've only used it a couple times for (rare) tripod shots. It takes way better pictures in lowlight (the ccd is amazingly noise-free at high ISO levels) but I don't think it would survive a drunken night in a bar, so it stays home.
I'm still figuring out how to use these things so thanks!
