    I must say i'm relieved, since i have it ordered and i'm getting it in a
    week or two...
    Basically, none of the S1 features are lost, and since i've had S1, it's
    only a gain for me.

    The pricegrabber link from that site lists it as $499 with a $70 off coupon
    code at Dell = $429.

    But when I went to the Dell site using the link, it said the product cannot
    be found. If anyone is interested in trying to purchase it at this price, a
    phone call to Dell is advised.

    The coupon code expires in a coupon of days. Here's the pricegrabber
    details:

    Merchant: Dell

    Starts:9-Jun-05
    Expires:14-Jun-05
    Type:cash
    Amount:70.00
    Minimum Order Amount:450.00
    Description:

    Take $70 off an Electronics and Accessories purchase of $450 or more. Only
    valid on orders up to $1000. Expires 6/14 at 5:59 AM CST or after the first
    3000 uses.
    Code: 1VWL8GL8PSGGVK

    PriceGrabber has no control over merchant promotions and it can not
    guarantee that any promotion is valid even when it may still be displayed in
    the PriceGrabber site.

    It's likely the 3000-order limit was reached.

  6. OK, technically, there are a few S1 features that were lost in the S2. The
    automatic pop-up flash and the IR remote control. Since I never liked the
    automatic pop-up flash - I prefer to open it when I want to use it, it's no
    great loss to me. The IR remote is something I did use a few times and found
    it handy. Of course, using the self-timer, available with both models, is a
    decent substitute.

    All in all, I like the S2 over the S1. It takes better pictures for me under
    the conditions I use it most. So, I'm happy.

    Bye.

    Read the review. One nice thing over the Fz5 is low light gain up on
    the EVF and LCD and the swivel LCD. The FZ5 comes in black.

    It appears that overall I do not see a clear advantage of (compared to
    FZ5) one over the other unless I am missing something.

    Does anyone out there see much difference between the two?

    The FZ5 is smaller, but it doesn't have the swivelling
    viewfinder.

    I read the review also. I am curious to know what your take is on the
    review.

    If you considered the Pan FZ5 then why did you choose the S2?
