• Mr. Farkas' response is brutal. The poor fellow just asked a question and Farkas instantly speared him with the hated manual. This could have been handled better. I'll never ask a question again.

    My demographic as a denizen of the rural south explains why I am asking this question. What is benefit of a CS lens to an outside bright light handholding S2 shooter? Does your answer change when shooting flowers and/or bumblebees with the S2 and 120mm on a tripod?

    Thanks for your answers.

    I bought into the projected lens line-up, and while the 35 fits my shooting needs, I had also planned on the 30T/S even though close in FOV to the 35mm for all practical purposes, because the T/S would have brought a completely different…

    There is another reason not to read or possess the SF 58 manual. It is too heavy and wildly overpriced based on weight. The SF 58 manual weighs 14.3 oz. The S2 manual weighs 7.8 oz. For the price of an S2, we should have received a really heavy manual. The numbers get worse when one applies this test to lens manuals.

    Isn't sdhc/cf card management on the wishlist for future upgrades? I would be very pleased with the ability to have images written to each card simultaneously as a backup measure.

    I'm perplexed by this thread. Why are the customers thanking the vendor? In my experience the vendor thanks the customer. S2 customers are a very tiny segment of the camera market and they are to be valued highly.

    As far as i am concerned the S2 is, for me, the best camera that I have ever owned and I am pleased that it exists and that I can…[Read more]

    I should start reading manuals. 😉

    For many good reasons, reading manuals is unacceptable and may be illegal in some jurisdictions.

  • My S2 hasn't endangered my other cameras at all. In fact, they are much safer now that they never leave the house.

    My personal experience is with GGS, AC MAX, and Giottos. I think that Giottos is the best optically and seems to be easily removeable. A LITTLE heat from a woman's hair dryer really helps. I have only used one GGS so I cannot comment. I have installed several AC MAX and they appear strong but are lacking in optical quality. Every one has newton…[Read more]
