"RE: Film or Digital?"

I still prefer my F100 and film because of the higher fps for sports and the ability to use the full field of view of my wide angle lenses.

Regarding longevity, think about what you'll need to do with digital files:

1. Back them up
2. Keep the file formats current

Will the backups work? How long with CDRs last?

With film, I *know* that I can work with 30 year old negatives. Sure, they may fade a bit, but they won't be corrupt!

Having said that, when I see a camera with 4 fps, 11mp, full size sensor, and a $2000 price from Nikon, I'll give it a try.
