I agree on the magic idea, however I wanted to be sure of my reply and so I looked up magic on Wiki: the use of incantation, ceremony, ritual that presumably assure human control of supernatural agencies or the forces of nature. incantation: no, guess not. I won't even look that up. ceremony: totally yes. I have a coffee and charge the battery at 6AM ritual: probably yes. I do all sorts of funny things like get a coat or look up at the sky or pick two of the lenses. The last part about supernatural agencies. I think so. The pictures can be so great. Sometimes simply with the 50mm lens. I think this thread was a bit of a conundrum since magic by its very nature is not science and so comparing fx to dx is more normal scientific method than paranormal feelings. For me the d700 was a gift two years ago and it has felt like a ride on a magic carpet. Every once in awhile I get a truly beautiful picture and so I'll happily go along with the magical idea.
