    I mainly photograph as a function of wildlife research. I need to be able to take pictures in all lighting conditions, and though I take both close and far shots my current work emphasizes close-up pictures of small animals. To that end, I'm looking for a camera with the following features:

    Primary: high image quality, works well in low light, takes good macro pictures

    Secondary: durable, decent action photos, takes shots relatively quickly

    Would be nice...: a decent zoom (not expecting that with other features), decent battery life


    My price range is under $250, though under $200 is preferable.

    With all that considered, the Fujifilm XF-1 has emerged as my top choice. (Sony WX80 or Canon ELPH500 were also considered.) However, some people mention a bug with the lens that comes up sometimes. For those who have owned the XF-1, is it worth getting it anyway?
