Yes some would argue with this opinion  as most DSLR'S from Canon  and Nikon
and who ever else are about the same size. Some a little bigger some a
little smaller. And these cameras, full frame dslrs' are being used all day
every day outside by photojournalists. As well as every other type of
photographer  you can name - full frame DSLR's rule right now much more so
than SLR's ruled in the 90''s because people use DSLR's to do what 645's did
before as well as Hasselblads.
Its just that medium format digital really is a whole lot better.
And an S2 is a medium format camera disguised as a regular full frame DSLR
from sunny Germany.
To imply its design makes it of limited use is not realistic.
This camera is imminently usable for most of just about anything.
Take one to the bottom of the ocean.

Yes with a little bit of luck a camera configured more like an M9 will be
put more in the running. And I'd assume soon. If not I'm sure we'll be
running out of all the nice stuff we've been saying about Leica's new savior
and boss.

I saw and held an S2 in 2010 when I attended a workshop on using the M9.?
