After spending hours at dpreview and other places, I've just about decided that the S2 is the camera I'll save my pennies for.

1. Who among the pro shooters has the S2 as their primary working camera ? Why did you choose it over the others?

2. Who among the pro shooters thinks there's a better camera for general model work than the S2 at the same price range , has that other camera, and what is it?

I use an S2 as my primary camera. Very happy with the color from the sensor and the range of available ISO and WB settings.

This image was shot at Rolando's workshop under a nasty florescent light with the #3 florescent WB setting at 1600. I like it. Color as it came out of the camera!

Any specific questions, shoot me an e-mail!

I have a D-100. Found it everything I needed and somethings I didn't know I needed until I had them.

S2 is based on the N80, a nice camera, but it's focusing mechanism hunts a lot more than my D-100 and I've found the metering in the D-100 much, much better and accurate. Plus, the D-100 is cheaper.

In all actuality, find a photo store that has one play around with one or each, or even better, if you're in a local that has a place to rent one, try that. It's like comparing Chevy vs. Ford as to which one is better, so it's really going to come down to which one 'feels' the best to you.

Both take as good an image as the taker has the ability to produce.

The Fuji guy had one at Rolondo's Philly workshop. It was great, had to have one.

Already had an investment in Nikon lenses and the D1x/h was too expensive. So only choice was S2 or D100.

Price wasn't a consideration, after having to buy a new flash for the D100, a spare battery pack and raw conversion software the price was pretty much the same.

Having previously owned a Fuji digital camera, I was comfortable with the SuperCCD.

And I am certainly satisfied with it in all respects.

I'm a Fuji S2 owner. You really won't go wrong with any of the digital cameras in this price range. It really depends on the small things that ultimately make your decision (unless you have an investment in lenses). Probably the only minor/major thing on the Fuji (that I can think of off the top of my head) is it doesn't have mirror lockup and the 125th flash sync speed. The mirror lockup is usually only important for landscape photographers.

Dpurslow also has a Fuji S2. He has been posting lately so you can search for his posts.

JT Smith has a Fuji S1 if that helps any.
