    they opened a new store around here and a friend had some shots done...they weren't bad..very cookie cutter portrait. They use fugi S2 bodies and tamron 28-75 lenses. seems like an odd choice for a giant franchise..any thoughts on why they wouldn't use canon or nikon?

    yeah, being a giant franchise they probably went with whoever would give them the best deal....

    The S3 is based of the Nikon D1, and the S5 off of a D200, If I remember correctly. All of these cameras have fuji sensors which have extended dynamic range, and as well, are known for their skin tones. That's why wedding shooters/portrait photographers use them. I'm sure they also got a good deal on them, though.
