Been shooting with a variety of cameras since 1998 - in fact, well over 100 models. So I'm always in the game for a superb enthusiast model (or Bridge camera as they used to be called). I came late to the game with the EX2F, a good 1-2 years after it was initially released. But I must say that once I received it and began capturing images with it, I was taken aback in a very positive way. Although I have a half-dozen other brand enthusiast high-end compact cameras, this Samsung trounces many of them, in particular, in the area of image clarity. The definition and clarity of the optics on this EX2F is nothing short of amazing! The build quality is absolutely superb, the feel is wonderful, and the ergonomics are spot on (well, in my opinion, that is). But I must again state that the clarity of the images captured by the EX2F is a direct result of the superb optics used in this camera - the results can be downright stunning (appearing more like a much higher megapixel camera)....

I purchased the EX2F one month ago to be a step-up camera for me from the Samsung SH100. ( My wife has decided the SH100 is now her camera). After reading about many cameras I decided on the EX2F because of the wifi option ( the SH100 has that too) and the many other features it offers, most of which I have not yet tried. I was particularly attracted by the F1.4lens. To date, it has turned out to be everything I thought it would be....and more. I am really looking forward to using this camera in Europe this summer. I would suggest that the lens cap be modified to be the "push-thru" type or "retractable" type rather than the removable type - but this is a very minor old-school issue. Great Camera that I recommend!

EX2F has the brightest lens available in a small form factor size digital camera. Fast focus in the smart mode operation. Ease of use is excellent partially because it has a fully articulated swivel display. I find this handy especially for taking quick shots of small children. The resulting image isn't the typical you're looking down at the child. And you don't need to get on your knees to get a straight on shot either. The screen technology provides a high contrast image and doesn't bleach out in bright light situations. Two things that could be improved is a greater zoom than 3.3x and availability of more accessories for the EX2 which would make it stand out from all competitors.
