Hi guys. I am seriously taking into consideration buying a D100 DSLR, but find myself reluctant due to, basically, the following reasons:
1- price 2- 1.5x magnification factor, that forces me into buying a special wide angle lens or a cheap lens converter (the kind sold by Kenko, Adorama or other brands) which solve the coverage problem but whose optical quality makes me doubtful 3- slow interface: USB 1.1 is rather slow, specially considering that USB 2 is now the standard in any computer. 4- Obsolescence: the recent announcement of a 14.1 Mpixel DSLR makes me wonder how much longer will Nikon be able to charge $1500-2000 for the D100 (believe me, I have seen E stores that post the D100 at little over U$1500!!!)...
I would like to read your comments on the later points, specially if you have heard any rumours regarding an upgrade to USB 2, or maybe a Nikon DSLR with 100% lens coverage.
My option is to get myself an "old", trustworthy F100 right now and hold myself away from de D world while this rather new and exhilarating market consolidates itself a little more.
Digital sucks: you can't blame it on the lab anymore!!!
