    May be I've not been long enough here, this is the first time I see ex-user of S2 asking others to go for something else.

    I've seen many ex-users praising their S1 or S2 or FZ5 or FZ20 when they were still using it or when they were trying to sell it to upgradge to DSLR.

    Frankly, I've never been impressed with the picture quality of the posted pictures taken by S1 or S2 or FZ5 or FZ20 although I've heard many praises from owners.

    Please dun be mistaken! Advising people to go for a better equipment does not mean that our ex-equipment is not good. Just wanna caution ppl to spend wisely. In fact the Canon S2IS are better in many aspects vs other brands except for noise at ISO400 and focusing speed(vs DSLR)

    Just some images to share (taken by Canon S2):









    Hope Skywolf makes a good decision.

    Force from the Dark side is too strong. tat's y!

    Hope dun misunderstand. I do not mean that prosumer is no good. Just that from experience i find that a entry DSLR is also suitable for Newbie(like me!). And also the fact that if you buy the accessories for the prosumer cam it will go up to S$1000++ . My personal view.

    yes, but the cost of DSLR + accessories + lens = at least 2k
    tats a lot of difference

    Would be nearer to $3K if you want to cover the focal length range with at least reasonably ok lenses : wide, normal, macro and long zoom.

    Your post reminds me of flowers and Sentosa. Here are some pictures taken by Nikon Coolpix 5700 :

    S9500 is a pretty gd prosumer cam. Looks like a DSlr as well. tested it for a frd b4 and the pics turn out pretty nice too.
