Not exactly - she lives on a different continent! But I purloined a  
few images when she arrived for Christmas - Borneo was a stopover on  
the way. I used a loan unit - it was shelf stock by the look.  
Shooting at maximum extension and hand held, a test shot of a static  
subject in bright sunlight was remarkably sharp. The Fuji S5600  
(S5200 to you) by comparison was horribly soft. I was very surprised.  
Of course, results in dimmer conditions might be a different matter.
I know that IS is a big selling point and I have seen survey data  
that indicates that buyers are very happy to have it after purchase  
(more important to them than they had estimated before purchase) but  
I think it a bit overrated is all. Still, 'tis true that they'll have  
to get it and Oly knows that.
