I intend on sending the camera back to Nikon for servicing - I'm just so afraid though that when I get it back, the CCD will have crude all over it. I tend to keep my CCD very clean and am careful when changing lenses. I can just see a technician at Melville, New York unscrewing the body cap and leaving it sit there open while doing something else...what a nightmare!
As for your reference to holding off on the S2 Pro...well, I already bought it a few months ago (and luckily, it has worked superbly so it was not a waste of money for me). I use both cameras, but I have to do so much more with the D100 to get the photos I need.
