Your previous postings got me sweating and drooling for an OM-3Ti but,  
HA-HA, not this time! I already have a 2S!
I agree the sound of the 2S operating is very different than any other OM,  
not just a little different. If you didn't know that up front and used it  
alongside your other OMs, you'd swear something was wrong or it needed a 
CLA. At  least that's how it sounds to me.  And no, mine I think, doesn't need  
one, it recently was serviced.

There  are simpler cameras and there are more capable cameras, but when it
comes  to a camera that is no more than a single press of a button away  
getting a picture, the OM-2S lets you watch your subject and lets you  fully
operate the camera without looking at it.  Manual mode? Just  slide the
switch to the back position, Auto exposure?  Just slide it  to the middle
position. Program mode? Just slide it forward.  Adjust  exposure
compensation?  One finger with one hand. Almost all of my  lenses are F2.8
lenses, so to get to any particular aperture you just count  clicks. Without
even looking you can wind the aperture ring to F2.8 and  click it back to
your selected aperture. F8? Three clicks clockwise. In  manual mode you want
to exposure shift? Just rotate both rings the same  direction.
