Chuckle, they may have some ground breaking features. However it comes down to usage and what you're going to shoot. Nikon suffers because of their sensor due to the fact it produces noise at high ISOs (something it's playing catch up to Canon). Fuji's Technology for their sensors whilst interesting and does produce great results can suffer from noise, pixelisation and high iso issues, it also suffers in resolution issues (resolving power not MP). That's not to say the S3 doesn't produce good shots, it does but in very limited conditions (such as portraiture and studio). It's high dynamic range is too slow for fast moving events.
Almost all consumer cameras use a 3rd party sensor even Nikon and Canon, the sensor usually comes from Sony (just have to see that debablé a few months back with a lot of manufacturers recalling sensor issues).
As you say it's down to preference, but if you're a professional then you must choose the right tool for the job especially if you have to consider low light shooting (weddings, events, journalism, concerts, etc). In any sporting event count how many white lenses there is on the lines ;).
I have used a 602, then a 602 Pro before moving to a dSLR. It was a good camera to learn from although I felt that some of the shots had too much noise which essentially rendered them useless for printing above 8x12 without additional work.
