The votes say it all.  Fuji FTW- you pay too much for the Nikon name

I bought the Fuji because of the price and the viewfinder.  Something I don't see mentioned here also, Fuji is 14mp, while the Nikon is only 12 or 12.1mp.  The Fuji is a great value!  The only real big perk I see that the Nikon has over the Fuji is slightly better image stabilization.  However, the Fuji has the viewfinder allowing you to rest the camera against your face to steady your shots.  Picture quality on each is close, as I have a friend who owns the L120.  They're both good camera's, but for the price I don't see how anyone would choose the L120 over the Fuji, unless the Nikon name means that much to them.  The Fuji S3200 is probably the best bridge camera you can find for under $200 bucks.
