>> The OM-2 could move 5.5 fps with a motor drive and wet film. That was plenty. You might want more, but who really NEEDS more?

In a previous thread I argued that that is the wrong question. The point is going backward, and how that effects the yield of what one has already been shooting.

What might have been considered an amazing shot in the OM-2 days is now considered quite pedestrian. Digital has raised the bar considerably. What might have got a cover on SI or NG back in the good ole days now might not make the high school newsletter.

I happen to shoot a sport that basically demands a minimum of 10 fps to be competitive (jousting). I've always limped along at 8 with my D300 and then D700 + grip. In that case I don;t want to go backward.

For most other things, 6 or so is "enough" - for me - but I think that is a very personal preference/requirement.
