FinePix S3200 Aperture - Iris/ND Filter...
Thanks for tightening up on on my explanation - pictures/"exploded view" of the lens would certainly do a better job than my wording.

My understading (of my own graphs) would be that the third aperture setting is in fact a further opening of the physical iris - the bottom graph-line. So I don't see it as an intermdiary setting, but more a second, wider aperture (non-ND) setting.
Anyway diving any further into the opto-mechanics would be guesswork (unless I take the camera apart). And as I tend to use A, M and P/Auto (by habit and because of exposure mechanisms e.g. floating ISO), I guess I have a fairly good idea on how to manoevre with the camera to get decent results. I am sure the rest of the family will put it into SR Auto/Family mode - and be happy about it...
On a side note, interesting to see the X100 also includes and 3 stop ND filter, which can be used a bit more creatively/controlled, but also suggested for dealing with certain cases with conflicts between the wide open aperture and the in-lens shutter design - some might claim it is not fair comparing these cameras...
As for the X100; we are getting nearer to Christmas, and it's on my list...
