JB,

Yes, I did speak too soon (as usual) about the EV range of the D100. I have now determined in my own testing that is it almost as capable as negative film in holding a range of light values. It held over five stops of value in my test photos. So, it is just a bit better than transparency film, with the caveat that any very bright sources of light will lose detail more quickly than with any film I've used so far. I still preach the opinion, "Expose for the highlights, adjust for the shadows!"

I, too, am intrigued with the 1.5 FOV crop vs. Image magnification issue, and will be addressing that very soon in my D100 review. I am shooting some side-by-side images with both my F5 and my D100 at the same focal length, with the same lens, and we will examine the images soon.

Thanks for the cool suggestion!
