Fuji announced a total of seven new cameras, but sadly none of them support the RAW format. The two candidates that should have had RAW in my opinion are the F50fd and the S8000fd. The F50fd added a full PSAM (including manual exposure control) and sensor-shift imate stabilization, and a 7th generation SuperCCD 1/1.6" sensor. RAW would have been a great compliment to those...
The S8000fd features a big 18x optical zoom lens starting at 27mm, a 1/2.35" traditional sensor (not 100% sure yet), sensor-shift stabilization, and it intends to compete with the other super zooms out there such as the Panasonic FZ18 and Olympus SP-550Uz both of which support RAW. The other super-zooms not supporting RAW are the 15x Sony H7 and H9. And by that I am only including those with a bigger than 12x zoom ratio. This is what I call the camcorderization of superzooms.

I will start assembling a list of all non-dSLR cameras with RAW support, both current models and models from the last few years. Also I will create a list of cameras that should have had RAW. For the purposes of this, I am only going to be counting cameras that offer RAW support directly or via a manufacturer's firmware update. Time permitting I may also delve into the raw option via hacks (eg Olympus ORF files).
I will also be doing individual posts highlighting each current "RAWsumer" model, similar to what I did for the Ricoh GX100. I can't promise a timeline yet, since I am still finishing up the Fauxtokina 2007 predictions and speculations
