Thanks for the input - and you fall into the category in which I can definately see the newer tech - i.e. fast action and sports.

I wasnt aware of the improvements in AF tech - but I also havent researched it much as I didnt want a reason to "want" a D3..

YOu've got me on the 12MP of the D2X - truth be told - I was going to get a D1h because of the smaller file size specifically, and I like the body... but the battery was a bit of a deal breaker for me... ALthough I am considering picking one up as a "toy" body in the future.

I honestly wasnt aware the D3 was 12mp - but once again - never researched it due to cost... Thanks for educating me.

I like your point about "working a subject" as opposed to clicking off frames. It is easier to try various ideas and techniques that may or may not work out when you arent paying for each frame.

Another question - for new photographers and students - do you think digital inspires bad habits compared to film in regard to composition, or do you think it helps due to the instant feedback? I can think of arguments on both sides.

..and just for the record - I'll be the first to admit not being an expert in the field - just a hobbyist with passion.. So my views may (and most likley are) be very far from "proper" in terms of good technique.
