    How do Nikon Rangefinders (particularly the S2) compare in terms of ease of use and reliability to Leica M3's, Canons, Contax's, etc?

    I started another thread on this forum about using a modern film canister in an S2, but I didn't get too many responses. That made me do some research here and I found very little threads about Nikon rangefinders. Any particular reason why Nikons are hardly mentioned? Again, just curious.
    The S2 is the only rangefinder I can think of with a 1:1 viewfinder

    I guess it was never meant to be.



    I ordered an S2 with a 50mm 1.4 from KEH last week and it was supposed to be delivered yesterday.



    It was never delivered.



    I checked with UPS and they advised me that they lost my package!!! The tracking info advised that it made it all the way from KEH to the hub in my city. It then states that it was in the truck. That was the last entry. THE UPS DRIVER LOST MY CAMERA!!!!



    I contacted KEH today and they were both sympathetic and helpful. Problem is that the S2 in EX condition that I ordered was their last one.



    I came so close to owning the S2 of my dreams. What a pitty that we have such dishonest people on this planet. I blame the UPS driver entirely for this. I wish there were someone I can complain to about him. Unfortunately that won't bring my S2 back to me, but at least it would prevent this guy from ruining other people's holidays.





    p.s., I have ample reason to suspect the driver took it because of the following:



    1. I work two blocks away from my home and I once had to have a word with the UPS driver because he was blasting his music very loudly from his truck at the place I work. I asked him politely first, but then he copped an attitude and I told him he needed to lower the music or leave. (yess, it was that loud).



    2. A couple of months passed by since that incident and I thought all was ok with him afterwords. Yesterday when I was supposed to recieve my package I noticed he went to my workplace first. I asked him if he happened to have the package on his truck so I could save him the trip, but he said that he wasn't the driver who delivered on my street and that the driver had not brought his cellphone that day, so he couldn't contact him.



    3. The tracking info indicated that it had left the warehouse/hub and was in route to my residence; the package was on a UPS truck.



    4, Mysteriously my package never shows up! Coincidence? I think not.


    UPS really sucks.

    Thanks. I am really pissed off at UPS now. It's not so much about the money, it's more about the mean-spirited jerk driver who "lost" my package. It's about the fact that this camera in the condition I ordered is extremely difficult to find. One way or another, the money will go back into my credit card. I will dispute this charge until I breathe my last breath.
