Never seen them side by side, but I'm fairly sure the S2 would be the better performer.
 
The Omega is pretty good. I would compare it to a Nikon Buckmaster, optically speaking.
 
The S1 really never impressed me much.

I agree with Cheap, SII has the best glass and a 42mm objective.

SII is the best one of these three.
