There are a number of improvements of XL-1 to the S. Most of the faults were cured.

Still, a number of people have not upgraded to the S staying with the old 1. Why? Simply put the old XL-1 still a very good cam and money that could be used for the upgrade are used to buy lenses like the 14X or 16X manual lenses.
