I understand what you all are saying about the D100. I think that from time to time on mine, even RAW images come out a little soft. However, when was the last time anyone got a perfect roll of film? Please son't take these comments as offensive, I simply mean to point out that no camera (or photographer) is perfect.
I wonder if many of the people who are so quick to jump on exposure problems with the d1 series frequently print their own images? I've been in the darkroom for about six years and behind a camera for most of my life. No matter what camera, brand, or setup, some shots get messed up. For me, it is easier and faster to fix problems on a computer than in the darkroom. Again, no offense.
Finally I wonder what computer software/hardware combinations do to 'ruin' images that were properly exposed? My home PC is very nice and fast, except for my 7 year old Trinitron monitor. Images from both of my digitals look much better on the new Macintosh in my office. I'm the first to admit that my own monitor is a piece of dookie, and the one at work is much better.
Digital photography is a relatively new invention. In the 150 years of photography, not much has changed up until now. Sure, quality of the cameras has increased, but digital is a whole new frontier. With all things there is a learning curve. Te most important part of using a camera is knowing its weaknesses, and finding a way to work around them.
You can bet I'll be around doing my part to investigate this new method.
