Nikon Coolpix L100 is a surprise AA-superzoom looking for its niche

While the Nikon P90 is the most expensive and highly-spec'ed of the eight new Coolpix models announced, the new Coolpix L100 is the most intriguing and surprising model. It's obviously not your typical "fun/travel zoom" of the sub-$300 segment, and it's not the mid-range-type super-zoom either. Perhaps the closest thing to this model are the Fuji S1000fd/S2000hd models.
