I couldn't agree more - they deserve to be treated as any other piece of Nikon gear. I personnally don't think that digitl will replace silver halide -just as 35mm didn't replace 120 or APS didn't replace 35mm. They both have their place within the family of photography and should not be compared as much as admired in their own right. I personally don't use digital, but I assist a wedding and social photographer who is about to take the plunge in the D1 pool. We shall operate in both 35mm and digital giving our customers the best of both worlds - surely this is how it should be?
