I have an S2 myself, and it's funny how i can always see that the
S3 images are different because of the increased dynamic range.
This extra contrast sometimes makes the S2 images look slightly
more aggressive, but of course you can would be able to get that by
either disabling those extra sensor or perhaps even simply by
boosting the contrast.

Is the 500mm F8 mirror lens difficult to use? Is it large?
I'm slightly tempted buying one of those ...

Thank you very much for your comments, the yellow plant and the nettles as you have probably guessed are with the 500mm, I am very pleased with mine, my hands are unsteady these days so I had the camera on a monopod, it is fairly light given the focal length, see this site for more info.


Mine is a fairly early copy with the C designation and I do not have any filters or a case, but as I said I am pleased with the results.
