Does anyone shoot with this camera? And tell me what you like and dislike.

I have one but havent really had enough time to put up any good shots from it on to the site as yet. My latest ones from LHR are not too bad though.

Coming from an S1 to the S2 its night and day different, quality is better, no nasty green colour cast and you have so much more control and being able to shoot at 100asa is nice and RAW output is a bonus. No complaints from me about it although to get the best from it you do have to use good glass.

I've been using it since July and all my photos on a.net since then have been with the S2. I love it and not only for aircraft photos. Fortunately the reviews on dpreview.com have been great for it also. I like the advantage of using the 13meg RAW files to convert into 69meg TIF files and then being able to produce larger 300dpi prints.

I've put a lot more shots on www.pbase.com/airlinerphotos - not only the best but almost everything I've shot with it.

There's a few other S2 users on a.net and I hope they respond to this thread.

Like Don, I shoot with the S2. It has exceeded all of my expectations, and allowed me to capture some truly stunning images. Some are very impressive (if I do say so myself) and since I started using it almost everything I submit is added. Also, I am constantly receiving emails asking what equipment I am using. I have come to learn however, that a good lens is essential. The S2 will show any imperfection or lack of quality in a lens.
