Having read everything there is to read on the S2, and having shot it side by side with my Phase gear for an hour or more, I end up with a check list of things I should know the answer to but don't and if you guys can help I'd really appreciate it!
1) It was stated in the early puff that each individual lens's performance with regard to focus shift with stop-down was measured at the factory, with the information being stored on chip so that it could be transferred to each individual camera body, which would micro-adjust AF appropriately. This claim is now missing from the brochures. Do you have any idea if it was ever implemented?
2) We know that you can't adjust exposure compensation without looking at the LCD but I can't work out, from the instruction book, when you are in A mode, how much (if any) warning is given in the VF. There's a plus-minus indicator but MR seems to e saying that is only active in M mode. There's also an over/underexposure warning bar with what looks like half stop markings to plus/minus 3 stops and my understanding is that this does not indicate how much compensation is set, it just shows you how much over or underexposure the meter is currently 'seeing' relative to whatever value is in the AE lock. ANy further ideas or comments here would be incredibly useful
3) The 'jog wheel' selector switches, when pushed inwards and when the Mode dial is set to A, between A and P modes. In my shooting this was incredibly irritating because it was too easily activated unintentionally and I was told that shipping versions of the camera would have a lock on this wheel. Did the version you had have this?
Thanks for any info!
