The main purpose of the S2, as far as I am concerned, is to make the  
M8 seem "priced right"...

but I am as guilty as many here, so I will say it as a New Years'   

I will chase the ideal image rather than the ideal camera...

and I'll remember that the two may at best, have a vague or intangible  

or none at all...
