Help. I need to pick up a digital SLR to complement my Nikon N80. I like the D100 but the biggest problem is the 1.5 factor for the lenses. The widest I have is 19-35mm zoom. I need at least 20mm for the real estate shots I do. This would make my 19mm end a 28.5mm. I do not want to pick up a 14mm wide angle. Any ideas how I could get around this. Besides an $10,000 new Kodak nikon mount. Any Digitals in the same price range as the D100 with the capability to go 20mm. The reason I need the digital is sometimes I have to use the photos almost as soon as I take them and even a one hr. isn't fast enough or quality good enough. An ideas would be great. Thanks.

well outside of buying a new lens which for some reason you are not open to I think your only option would be to compensate for this by taking shots from further back. I wish I had the formula but there is one and I will look for it that spells out how far back you need to go in order to replicate X angle.
There are pleanty of good lense options like the Sigma 15-30 EX that you could go with.
Give me my D2Hs and 50mm 1.4, then step out of my way.

I don't intend to get rid of the N80. I want the digital to add. I can't step back because it is interior stuff. Prob just have to break down and buy a new wider angle lens just trying not to spend even more money, the D100 is enough in $$$$.
