    okay, so I've spent enough money on film lately to almost convince me on a
    digital. My friend with teh D60 is nothing but touting it, my professional
    friend is ready to sell his two 10Ds and upgrade to teh Mark II's... so left
    and right I'm getting people tell me that it's about time I leave my film
    behind [I'm reminded of that "when I was a child..." speech].

    I'm by no means a professional... more like a curious hobbyist. I have an
    Elan II, which has served VERY well. I have not 'wanted' with this camera
    in a while [like I did with my Rebel].

    So... which camera should I go with? I'm sure I won't be willing to
    'downgrade' to a the dRebel... Is the 10D the exact as my Elan? What would
    I be missing? What would be gained?

    Thanks...

    The 20D (10D replacement) should be out by the time you read this
    (13th of September) - it's specs should be better than your Elan.

    I had a Elan II & IIe and I was unhappy
    with them.

    However I find the 10D is an excellent
    camera, that is controllable.

    Get the 10D (its better, far better then
    the Elan II)

    Okay, so what's the advantages of the 10D than the Elan II... and i mean
    photographically not just digital. What am I gaining in this guy for camera
    features.?

    What about the 1.6x multiplier?

    Ok what are you gaining? better
    focusing, better light metering, better
    control.

    What about the 1.6x multiplier? get
    more from a telephoto/macro ex. put a
    300mm lens on it and it equals 480mm

    Not to mention you will see your photos
    instanly (quicker then Polaroids) and
    that beats waiting for film!

    But hey go to a store like B&H and check
    it out yourself, after all the
    photographer should be able to choose
    what he/she wants?

    Good luck
