I live in toronto and am going to buy a digital slr next week. I have enouph $ to buy the S2 pro out right ,or I could go into debt for D1s. I will be using the camera for fashion and product. In canada the D1s is $10200 and the S2 is $2500. Without taking lenses into consideration, is the D1s $8000 better than the S2 or something like it? Should I bite the bullit and get the D1S now? or buy the S2 and wait?Thanks

    Both are fine cameras (assuming you mean Fuji S2 and Canon 1Ds), but very different. The S2 isn't even in the same league as the 1Ds. Do you have any lenses? Fuji uses Nikon F mount.

    not only are you comparing 2 totally different leagues of camera, but you're comparing (essentially) apples to oranges in terms of glass (nikon vs. canon).
