Here's one for all you digital fans out there!

I'm toyng with the idea of getting a digital SLR. At the moment use an F3 with some fine MF lenses which I would like to use on a digital body if possible as I cannot afford to replace them with AF versions yet. I'm not fussed about matrix metering/multi program or any of that nonsense, as long as I can use a basic C/W meter and TTL flash, and be able to plug the thing in to my Mac.

I guess the ultimate question is: Is a rugged F3 with 5fps motor still faster, better and more reliable than a digital SLR? Is digital more prone to knocks and bumps/extreme temperatures etc....
Is digital quality better/worse than transparency film? Is it possible to transfer digital pics to standard 35mm transparency film, for projection alongside regular slides?

Any comments would be HUGELY appreciated!
