BUF (Bottomline Upfront) Military Term! BUF: Someone slap me! Why? Thinking about buying a Fuji S3 or S5 Pro Because: I have always loved the colors produced by their CCD sensor. My first and still using digi cam is a S7000. I had some prints made an I and still astonished when I look at them. Okay, I have not printed any out from Da 50 or Der D200 but the thought keep coming back again. Price is at an affordable rate now. Oh well, thought went away!!!! :blink:

Not even considering the S2 anymore? depending on what you're using it for, the 6 mp sensor may not be an issue. Using Fuji's raw software, it will output a 12mp file, plenty big enough for any practical usage. (of course, I'm partial, owning one, though I've played with the S5, it just doesn't do it for me, personally) erie
Nikon F, 5 or so F2 (several flavors), 3-F3/MD4, F4, Nikon D1X, D2X, Nikon D2Hs, D3, Fuji S2, Kodak SLR/N, 3 IR and full spectrum D100's, more glass than a person should own, 2-RB67/lotsa glass, Hassy 500EL 50/80/150/250, Megavision S3 back, Sinar 4x5 F, 4x5/8x10 P, 16x20, 20x24 cameras, Betterlight scanback, more LF lenses than I can keep track of, Broncolor Lighting

Appart from the colours i donīt see the practical advantage for you. That said iīd opt for the S5 as itīs much improved - not so much in terms of output but handling and speed.

You know I love my S3, didn't take it this trip (NOLA) due to space. Definintely going to Arizona next month. I didn't look at the S2 because I didn't think I could find a truely low mileage one. Would have opted for the S5 if I had the money, but then that's always the issue. Can't wait to try it in the Grand Canyon. OD
