Given that this appears to have much the same in terms of overall spec just a slightly lower zoom range it seems a better option to me given that it's £40 cheaper. I'll add that I know nothing about the Fuji range of cameras these days.

8200 is hot, but I think the 8650 is hotter. I suspect the 8200 is the replacement.

Argos do the 8650 for the same price as Tesco, but only in white. Tesco also have black, same price. Very pleased with the one I got from Argos some time back (via HUKD, I think). The only niggle is that the lens cap comes off too easily.

You'll probably need to budget £20 for a bag, as there is nothing included and these are an odd shape.

Don't forget to budget for Rechargeable AA's and a charger if needed. Bare in mind the aperture of the lens is going to be rather slow at the long end and wobbly as well at 960mm Handheld but it's £129. If you want RAW support and Optical Stabilization your need to spend at least another £100 on something more advanced and if you want a larger sensor and better image quality at the sacrifice of Lens focal range but better optics your need to look at a Mirrorless CCS or a DSLR.

The s8650 has a viewfinder, PASM modes, wider lens which is slightly brighter at the telephoto end of the zoom, zoom control on the lens, etc. However they are both Fuji so better hope it doesn't need to go in for repair!
