    Mabey this is true, mabey it isnt, but for most applications, if you have to go that far (30x) to prove your point then good for you. It will still suit 95%+ of people that want to use this camera for web or ~A3 size prints, and by your own admission you wont see any difference at that level.

    Honestly if what your saying is true i dont care - I would expect a 6m wide print from 35mm to be unsharp upclose from almost any camera and would have gone for my 617 long before then anyway.

    As with any tool its all about being fit for use, and s3 pro is perfectly fine for me and a lot of other users that know the limits of it. Theres no need to be rude about it because some of us realise that and dont hold things to standards well beyond what they are designed for.

    Is there any other uses of this pano out there. I was looking at there new U500 model & wondered if the extra feature is worth the extra spend ?

    I'm currently shooting with my S3 Pro in Spain and Italy. I enjoy using it and look forward to processing my film when I get back. I use chrome films with it and love the results. Also it's a very small portable camera that pairs well with my Pentax MX over my other shoulder when street shooting.

    buy s3pro but you must let an expert exchange its lens by a 202-lens. wiese fototechnik of hamburg can do it. he told me he could probably get these lenses ro defective cameras. i would buy a 202 from him. not cheap but perfectly working.
    all the opinions about a better lens are lies. i do not like dishonest people. kmz-zenit made a mistake and cannot confess, let alone start shipping cams with the right best lens. s3pro is the best horizon. 202 has the better lens. never ending discusions is waste of time. i had invested too much time with non-working horizons.

    I ended up getting a 202 as it was allot cheaper & I prefer the square shape. Really enjoy the camera & so far no problems except down under being way to bright, limiting the time I can shoot.
