    Haven't had mine for that long, but here's what I've ended up so far:

    Good for you! I think you'll be pleased.

    I'd gone and bought the 16-45/4 for my film camera in anticipation of getting the K100D or K10D later. It is a wonderful lens, but I'm having semi-regrets:...

    f/4.9 is just about 1 full stop slower than f/3.5, which means -all things being equal - a S2 exposure of 1/60sec will be 1/30 sec on the S9000.

    Some of the difference may be due to different levels of in-camera sharpening and color processing - the Kodak seems more sharpened and saturated. You might try to PS the Sony to see if you can get a...
