I read many good review about the PowerShot S2 IS. The 12x is very appealing to me and today I went to bestbuy to get a feel of it. It doesn't feel as good as the a95 but it was fine. It power on but I couldn't test it as I liked. If you own a S2 can you plz tell me some pro/cons of the camera. Do you guys think I should upgrade? thanks. Money is not a factor for me is more if the camera is worth upgrading.

For most people a stabilized 12 X lens is a lot of fun if you are into nature photography. If you take nothing but wider snapshots you still have the advantage of being able to handhold the shots in good indoor light without using the flash.

But if the A95 is suiting your needs it is easier to carry and you don't have to go through a learning curve.

Read Steve's review. He probably knows more about what to look for in a camera than most new owners.
