I am just wondering if the D1, D1H and D1X (just got one of these babies) and future Digital Bodies shouldn't be in the Nikon Products section along with the other bodies as these cameras take the same lenses as the other bodies. I agree that the Coolpix series should stay seperate as they don't qualify for a body (not SLR and interchangable lenses), but feel that the D1 series should be included here as the process of taking the shot, setting up, metering, lens selection, TTL flashing, etc.

While people will disagree with me, calling digital photographers not real photographers since we get to see what we shot immediately and can retake a bad exposure/composition, I also shoot F100's and have shot a N90s that was stolen.

I believe as the price continues to come down and more and more models are introduced, this is the direction that photography will take (maybe not in the next 5 years, but eventually).

Just my 2 cents, not trying to cause trouble, but when I look at the products section, I would like to see the D1 series of bodies included there as well as the F5, F100, N90, N80, etc.., digging through the digital section is more difficult as the cameras are grouped with scanners, printers, CF cards, hard drives, etc...
