I want it because it's within reach, Nikon priced this thing so advanced amateurs, like myself, could buy it. I have given a few of the models I've shot a DVD with the hi-res shots on it for printing and have printed a couple of my landscapes and hung on the walls. Although very unlikely, I may have more of a need for hi-res later in the year as more paid work is starting to come my way.........still not sure if I want the paid work though, my regular job pays the bills and buys toys, photography is a hobby and not a job and that's why I enjoy it.
