Hi All,

I've been a close follower of this forum. Finally I need your comments for myself.

I mainly shoot street photography, concerts, candids and to some extend nature. 70% BW and rest in color. I used to take lots of slides but due to poor quality of labs now I started to use negatives. I process My own BW film and recently set up a darkroom for prints. That is almost everything is going analog and I enjoy it a lot.

However, when it comes to color I have the problem. Film prices are too high that a roll of velvia cost USD 20 inc. processing. And new dslr's like d7000 are said to be on par with high quality slides.

And I do have F100, F5 and F6 as AF bodies. By the way I have F3 and FE for Manuel focus. I have not been using F6 for some time and F100+f5 are a Good combo when I need AF and matrix metering. I have 35, 50 and 85 mm primes, 18-35 mm, 24-85 mm G and 80-200 f2.8 tele that I can use for everything.

I have a d70 with kit lens that is used when I need digital.

Now the question is that to what extend it would be viable to trade F6 for d7000 considering that I will kep shooting BW film (that I like too much)? d7000 for color and analog for BW, what do you think?

Many thanks and regards...
