    Your post seems to be showing up three times, at least on my news
    reader.

    As much as a few of the new people hate it DSLR cameras do get
    discussed here, after all they share a lot of technology with 35mm film
    SLRs.

    There is a new group for just DSLRs
    Rec.photo.digital.slr-systems
    It is a pretty active group. There is also rec.photo.digital.

    The distinction between 35mm film and 35mm DSLR is not all that great.
    I would say that my 20D shares more in common with a typical 35mm film
    camera then say a disposable camera, even though the disposable camera
    uses film.

    Many of us shot film and digital together for a time, some still do.
    There is a transition that many are making from film SLRs to digital
    SLRs. When I was shooting both film and digital it was important to me
    to understand the limits of one media with respect to the other.

    For many of us DSLRs is the new 35mm cameras, not that they use 35mm
    film but that they have the feel and operation of what we got to know
    over the last few decades.

    digital.

    That is as it should be. (Nikon F2, Nikon N90s, lotsa Nikon MF lenses)
    That is why I'm upset that Nikon doesn't have a full-frame digital
    body. To rehash a well-worn argument, I don't want to unlearn
    everything I've learned in 30 years about which lens does what.
    Agreed. Why add different "effective focal lengths" into the mix?
    .... which is why I will keep shooting film until Nikon has that
    full-frame digital body that can meter with MF lenses.

    I agree with you: When Nikon puts out a Full-Frame D200 equivalent (the D200
    is the only camera with an AI ring allowing AI Nikkors [post 1977 lenses] to
    be used), **THEN** I will make my switch to digital; For now, I will
    continue to shoot film (on my trusty FM2 and MF lenses).

    Just out of curiosity, how do you get all the drool off your lenses?

  11. In other news, it is June 15th 1999, Nikon just introduced the D1...

    Or should I say, it is 1994, in coorperation with Fuji, Nikon introduced the
    E2...

    And then there is the D2X, Nikon's first DSLR to do color matrix metering
    with Ai lenses.

    What did you say that was new in the D200?

    Ah, it is the first *consumer* Nikon DSLR that can handle Ai lenses.
