Hello all,

I just ordered a Fuji S2 and need to decide on lenses. What are your suggestions? Is the 12-24 EX going to be available as planned (April 2003). Also would this lens work with Ikelites wide dome port? I want an array of lenses which would be practical for above as well as below water. So far, from reading peoples posts, I was looking at the following:

Wide: Sigma 14mm
Macro: Nikkor 60mm micro
Nikon 18-35 (?)

Any other suggestions concerning the S2 would be appreciated.

Thanks for all your help,

John

I have the Nikon 60 mm, and the Sigma 14 mm lens you mentioned , Iím please with both on my S2.

I also bought the Sigma 28- 300 mm lens for a all around vacation lens. I wasnít impressed with the performance and sold it.

I bought the Tamron 28-300mm Ultra Zoom XR f3.5-5.6 (IF) Macro and itís a much better
lens than the Sigma, Iíll keep this lens, you canít beat the versatility.

I use the S2 with the Nikon 60 mm and for the wide angle needs I recommend the Sigma 15 mm
fish eye: It's much cheaper than the Sigma 14 mm (actually half price), It's lighter, smaller,
and it's a very sharp lens too. Here is a review about the lens:
