    Thanks a ton Josh. That worked perfectly. The piece I was missing was holding down the AF/AE button while turning the camera on. I really appreciate it.

    Wonder if someone can help me with the updates. On the owners site for S2, the download instructions and the update are in German, a language I unfortunately do not understand. When I download the firmware update, it requires an application to open the file…[Read more]

I have quite a few M lenses and an M9-P, but they rarely see any use these days. I find myself looking for reasons to use the M over the S. Comments?

    [QUOTE=Pete Walentin;1378]This is a question covering a lot of aspects. Maybe I can cover a few of them.

    Thanks Pete. What you say is all true and I will certainly spring for the S2 real soon. I have handled it at a dealer and it certainly feels wonderful in the hands. I was concerned about the bulk, particularly for travel, but it is…[Read more]
