FX bodies are still not affordable for most people. I shoot mostly film, and refuse to fall into the perpetual gear upgrade rat race that the manufacturers, Nikon included, have perpetuated with digital bodies. Unfortunately, they will be landfill in a few years. My Nikon F keeps firing away, flawlessly. As does my FE2, F3, F2, and N80.
I hate to let this decend into a film vs digital debate, but it really is awful the way the market has done this. And people keep falling for it.
Not at all crazy about my D300, but, stuck with it for now.
