It shouldn't matter with image crop of to the CCD area in the D100.

Phil's review says the image size in the finder is quite small, so it's my bet that Nikon simply masked the area of an N80 finder for the smaller area crop - instead of making new finder optics with greater image magnification. If that's true, Nikon's crop isn't necessary unless perhaps to cover for "slop" if a 100% image area mask didn't agree with the captured area.

I'm surprised by how much the S2 kicks the D100's butt on TTL flash exposures. And the S2 doesn't require the dx feature to work if I'm following their specs correctly. The D100 looks good, now I'll be interested in Phil's review of the S2.
