Nikon E2s = Fuji DS-505a
Are you sure about this one? Jarle
Yes. I'm quite sure that the list is correct now.
I just ran a search on Fuji's website and they list the the DS-505, DS-505a, DS-515, DS-515a, DS-560 and DS-565 as their four model numbers. These would correspond to Nikon's E2, E2s, E2N, E2Ns, E3 and E3s.
The fuji non-A models are the ones with no shot buffer, while the -A ones have said buffer and can shoot a 3 fps or so. The original model was the DS-505/505A, which would correspond to the Nikon E2/E2s, and the updated model was the DS-515/515A, which would correspond to the Nikon E2N/E2Ns.
Obviously, Fuji chose to use an 'A', and Nikon an 'S', suffix to denote the presence of the magical buffer memory chip.
Originally, when I compiled the list, I goofed and carried that 'A' over to the third model series and called it out as the DS-565/565A, while Fuji had decided to drop the 'A' suffix and use DS-560/565 for the bufferless and buffered versions (which correspond to the Nikon E3 and E3s, where Nikon was still using the suffix letter that they'd used all along).
The first link you point to, I think has typo where he means' E2N', not 'E2S'. The second link is simply pointing out where the final version has the 'bump' on the bottom, where the SCSI interface parts are located.
