The Fuji cameras are very good, definition seems to be a bit better than others with similar spec. This is because Fuji developed a system where they can increase the apparent definition of the ccd (the chip that records the picture detail) by a factor of 2 making a 5mp camera something equivalent to a 10mp.
Having used Zeiss Contax RTS 2 for a few years with Zeiss Tessar and Planar lenses and conventional film I decided to change to digital and dismantled my darkroom where I processed all my own pictures, which on reflection was a bad move at the time as digital hadn't progressed suficiently by then!
My first ever digital camera was a Fuji 4900 and I was very pleased with it - except for one failing in those early days - when the shutter button was pressed the reaction was so slow you felt like going away and making a cup of tea while the camera decided when it was going to take the picture.
