There's a lot of continuing discussion with some members making very frequent posts about out-of-camera quality with these two cameras but they're not posting a lot of photos. You folks with the S2, please post some photos directly out of the camera so we can see what you're talking about.

Here is one photo taken a couple of days ago with my D100. The first one is from the NEF file straight from the camera untouched except to resample and convert to jpg. The second one zooms in to the pixel level of the first one; if I did it right those are the pixels from the camera. The third one was sharpened slightly (150%,0.7radius,4threshold) in PS7 with a little Fred Miranda saturation boost. No other manipulations were performed.

I'd really like to see something similar from our fellow members with S2's. I have family and friends who will be buying digital and if I can recommend something better than the D100 to them I'd be happy to do it.

Thanks!
