This is kinda weird but it's been buggin me. Anywayz, I have been shooting with my S2 for a little while now, b4 that I was mostly using an F100 and an N90s. When I used to stick my polarizer (circular) on my big lens and rotate it I could tell pretty well what was happening to my skies and stuff. With the S2, I have a harder time telling thru the viewfinder what's happening when I rotate the polarizer. I can hardly tell a change at all. The only thing I can think of is that the viewfinder's quality isn't up to the level I'm used to (it's small and sorta dark.) Any thoughts on this? With all the S1/S2 shooters around, I'm sure someone's noticed it if it's a common problem.

Thanks in advance!

Here's another image to see if I get it right. I guess I should have asked this on the technical forum, but oh well can't change it now.

Thanks again.

Because of the way the prisms and partially-mirrored surfaces are alligned, you may already be seeing partially polarized light in the viewfinder, which could, depending on the circumstanes, lead to seeing very little additional effect from a polarizing filer. I don't know enough about the S2 to be able to speak to it specifically.
