I have been a loyal Nikon fan and user since I purchased my first Nikon in Japan in 1959. I have owned every manner of Nikon since then including the FA, FG, N90, F3, F4, F5, F100, N70, N80 and others. With great reluctance I sold my F5 and purchased a D100. I am more than a little miffed at Nikon about the poor quality of photos "out-of-the-box." I get better initial photos with my Kodak digital. I know about how to correct many of the problems by using post-production software, but I did not buy the camera so that I could spend hours hunched over my computer trying to get the kind of prints that I should have once the photo is captured. I feel betrayed by Nikon. So much so that I am seriously considering selling the D100 and buying a Fuji S2. The only reason I am hesitating is my, apparently misguided, sense of loyalty to Nikon and the fact that I have purchased a bunch of accessories for this "latest" technology. I have several questions for the members of this forum. I would appreciate hearing from people who are interested in helping rather than trying to put me down. My questions are: Have the members of the forum tried to express your disappointment to Nikon? Are there others among you who feel as betrayed as I? Has anyone out there done what I am contemplating.i.e. selling the thing and buying a Fuji? If so are you any more pleased with it than the Nikon? I turn to you folks because you have always been so kind and helpful when I have posted other inquiries. Thank you,

Regards,

Ralph
