The widest angle lens I own is the 17-35mm zoom - so at 17mm I'm getting a field of view equivalent to 25.5mm.

That's the key thing to remember: the images from the D1 are the central 2/3rds of a 35mm image so you get the depth of field associated with the shorter focal length. You also get to avoid problems such as vignetting or any fall-off in sharpness towards the edges of the image, so while you sacrifice your really wide angle capabilities you do get some advantages in return.

Glad to hear you're enjoying your D1.

Alan.
