they both seem nice in certain ways.
the remote and lense filters are nice on the pro1 the viewfinder should be a lot clearer also. The S2 seems quicker and has IS and 12x zoom. tough to decide.

Actually I am trying to help my friend decide.

I'm having sensor problems with my S2 so I'm not the guy to ask.

Check out the Nikon 8800, a very nice 8mp camera with 10x zoom.

What kind of sensor problems ?

I dont know the Pro1, but I like my S2. 8800 is much more expensive than the S2.

Check out the incoming FZ30:

8Mp, 12x optical, not larger than Pro 1 I guess, great features, LCD ...

I doubt very much that sheer Image quality will bebetter than Pro 1, but certainly better than S2 (although I prefer Canon color and WB, but Photoshop can fix this)

I actually like Panasonic. I tried to convince her to choose one but she likes canon. The Panasonic sounds really nice. I will check more into it. I think she might have chosen her camera already :).

Thanks all.
