Saw one in the States for $3K (yup - 3,000) - and that's without accessories. There's a rival camera to the S1 - it's Canon's D30 (also same price range).
Geepers. If the trend continues in that people with regular SLR's are competing with digitals it'll be hard to get anything accepted unless you have a really great shot.

Thanks for highlighting that shot, now I have got the hang of the camera I can concentrate on taking better shots
The shot was taken in program mode with 0.7 over exsposure, the sky was actually much bluer but to give some light to the aircraft you loose that.
It is a very expensive camera but you guys shooting film still have the advantage when it comes to prints and enlargments. I have had a few requests recently from airlines wanting poster size reprints which I have had to turn down. The largest print size that I have found is 10 x 8 so you boys with film have a bigger advantage than me! So take that as a word of warning for anyone who is thinking about making the switch to being just digital like me.
Here's my personal favourite of the shots I have uploaded to Airliners, just something about it I like!
