New Nikon Coolpix S6100, S4100, S3100, S2500, L24, L23

The initial count of new Nikon's was eight, but now that the dust has settled, we have a total of ten new models! Here are the rest of them: six LiIon-based entry-level-ish models and two AA-powered. The biggest oddity is the L23 with a 1/2.9" CCD sensor and the S4100 with animated characters (whatever that means!) ;-)
