It's no secret that Fujifilm models its dSLRs on Nikon bodies, but its latest model, called the Fujifilm FinePix S5 Pro, may as well be a clone of the Nikon D200—from the outside at least.
EDITORS' RATING: 7.7, very good
THE GOOD: Very low noise at higher ISOs; wide dynamic range; solid, well-designed body.
THE BAD: Slightly sluggish AF system; low effective resolution for a pro-level camera; bloated file sizes.
THE BOTTOM LINE: While a wide dynamic range lets it serve up tons of highlight detail and impressive overall image quality, the S5 Pro isn't for high-speed sports photography, and it could use more resolution.
