Agreed... Before anybody talks you into having a heartattack I would first check the following: Batteries, Lens settings (Aperture) and last but not least... The manual. Descriptions for all S2 error messages are in back.
Before the heart attack, check your lens. I believe its the D series lenses that need to be set to all the way open. I get this "err" alot, and then look down to see that Ive rotated the appature.
