It's hard to over state what a nasty horrible crock of **** the
Nikon/Fujix E2n is. A truly *dreadful* thing which should have been
drowned at birth. Sad to say I have it on good authority that its
existence is the reason that there have been no improvements on the
AP NC2000e. Nikon think that the E2n with its relay optics, is the
way to go.

I hope they see the error of their ways soon.
