BJ,

Thanks for your response to the Reichmann article. I, too, am a reader of his site and find it an excellent site done rightly ( changing the content daily for example) and since landscape work is a primary interest of mine, I appreciate the Luminous Landscape. Having said that, however, I must say that sometimes Michael can be a bit much. He has been around a long time ( so have I) and often takes a bit of an elevated view of his opinions. His reviews of Canon gear often reflect that.
I agree with you that his implication that a six mp camera can equal a film medium format camera is over the top. About a year ago, I bought a new MF camera for the express purpose of making 16 x 20 enlargments of some of my work. Mostly I use my Nikon for landscape work, but on a few occasions, when the subject matter begs for it, I will haul out the Mamiya and make some Provia 100 transparencies. If an image really turns out to be good, I have a drum scan made of the MF image and order up a laser print. I don't know about anybody else, but I sure can see the difference! I use my own Nikon Coolscan IV to scan 35mm slides, just for the record.

In spite of what I do now, I can tell you I think digital is the future and just yesterday I put down a deposit on the forthcoming D100.It will be good I am sure, but I have no illusions that it will exceed or equal a good transparency made by any high quality medium format camera.
I do believe that in the next five years we will see 15-20 mp cameras that will make using film questionable. But, until then, using the mixed bag of cameras we have now makes the most sense to me.
