    Wow, what a truly thought provoking reply! Truly complex in its simplicity!

    Would you mind expanding a little on your view so we can see both sides of
    this discussion, I would like to see why you prefer 35mm over digital.
    I am in the market for the 20D myself. the ability to take 500-1000 pictures
    without having to change a single roll of film, or having to wait for
    developing them (or footing the bill for developing 500-1000 shots!) Most my
    work is never printed. It usually spends its life on the computer, so why
    not shoot straight to digital instead of shooting film then scanning?
    for my application, digital is better. for your application, it may not be
    the case.

    Occasionally he does let a thoughtful insight out but he manages to get over ti
    quite quickly.

    Paul is correct that film is superior to digital. But I think a digital
    capture device would suit you just fine Trey
    ;-)
    Later Dude!

  4. You really don't know? Have you ever seen Kodachrome taken with Leica
    optics and projected with Leica optics or printed with leica optics?
    Once you have, there is no question.

    nope, sorry, I have not had the chance. can you go ahead and scan a picture
    and post it on the web so we can take a look?
    well. I have only had one client that wanted their web site printed out. The
    rest were perfectly content looking at the web site on the computer.

    ahhh, no wonder. Leica is German. I really have to say, Those Germans can
    really make good stuff. However, its can not always be afforded on a college
    student budget. so some times "the best" will have to be left for those who
    can afford it.
