The photo quality with the S2 will be about the same as the 620.. though from what I've read, I'd pick the 610 over the 620...

The benefit of the S2 is the zoom, and stereo video.. The zoom is aswesome.

The benefit over the 610/620 is that it's smaller.

I think I personally know more people that own a dslr and a S2.. then a dslr and 610.. Don't really know what it means.. but whatever..LOL

There is no discounting the fact that the Canon A-620 with 7mp is going to give you added flexibility for cropping and greater sizeenlargements that the 5mp Canon S-2 cannot do. However, the tadeoff is that with the S-2 you get the extra zoom andone of the very best video clip capabilities in the point and shoot camera field.

You just have to make a choice.

I see you take shots of lanscapes and lot of architecture.
In that case you should be looking also focal lengths instead of plain zoom numbers, most of compacts and ultrazooms especially don't have much wide angle to talk about.

So I would suggest checking also these: (also you would surely keep mechanical zoom better than button zoom)
KonicaMinolta Ax-models (28-200mm)
Kodak P-880 (24-140mm)
Fuji S9000/9500 (28-300mm)


Here's also something you might want to read:

You have had the "sales pitch" from ET regarding the KM A-200 and other fixed lens KM cameras. But in the final analysis, it comes down rather precisely, to this: what 7mp camera, currently on the market will produce the great photos that you are used to taking. IMHO, currently the choice is the Canon A-620, in the near future it might be the Canon A-700 which will give you the addition of 6X optical zoom in addition to the megapixels.
