I heard today, that a high res scan (about 15 MB) from the S1 
needs up to 10 minutes, which would agree to the exposure time. 
I don't know if it's true - but, if it's true, I feel some 
complications for portraits - at least. And, 36x15 MB also means 
a lot of space for the equivalent of one roll ...

Taking these aspects into account I feel my temptation for a 
USD 20.000 S1 somehow limited.
