OK, you made me look it up. From the description of the H2's features, 
the second and third points, after sensor size:

"The integral lens shutters in H System lenses allow flash sync down to 
1/800 second and provide silent and vibration-free operation"

"These larger sensors hold more and larger pixels, which ensures the 
highest possible image quality and moire free color rendering without 
gradation break-ups - in even the most subtly lit surfaces and with low 
noise in shadow areas"

Sounds to me like the two points I made, with the addition of lack of 
mirror slap and shutter crash.

I have no idea about the Fujis you mention. I was specifically replying 
Bill's query about the necessity of H's:
