My reasons:

10-20mm Sigma
18-200vr Nikon.

Of course down the road in a couple of years.

The main reasons are:
Price and opportunity cost.
My current D70 does great work, largest so far 20x30" and planned 30x45".
I don't use high ISO.
Where available I prefer a more portable camera.

Actually I find film ie., the $30 or $50 F/N75 great - it does AFS VR and same pro film and pro lab as a F6! Its FF too.

My only camera is the D70 and had it since 2004 and clocked up 4,000 images. In the near future I would like more travel so photog is a back step for that. But I would like a D50 or a D2h classic used in a year or two. In the nearer time, maybe a set of used 3x studio lights and a background or two for family portraits and experience that....

A used FF digital of course, I would like one but I don't need one and doubt what I see in the print of what I do is significant. Ie., for me its not worth it.

Esp that in digital they just get better and better and cheaper and cheaper. Esp those 2nd hand deals.
