Speed. You can shoot football with it, and transmit with a cellular modem
while your shooting! Try that with an S1. But it's image size is 6 mgs, vs
the S1's 76 megs.

It's a great camera for news photography, but for high quality, you're
going to have to wait another 5 years before you'll get still images from
one that are good.
