This photos was shot by frogee, a Fuji SLR Talk forum member, on a California beach. I have taken the liberty of examining the photo for possible center/corner focus issues, and I really don't see any problems.frogee bought the S2 that made this photo as an "open box" unit,and uploaded the original of this image to her pBase webspace,at
as part of a thread begun at
I took the liberty of applying some Unsharp Mask and some re-sizing for the web. There seems to be no significant center/edge focus issue with this capture,and the ORIGINAL Fuji S2 buyer's claim that the camera gave sharp edges but soft centers on its images sounds like 1)buyer's remorse or 2)perhaps a nice smudge smack dab in the middle of the lens' rear element!
