I have a F100, a coolscan IV and a couple of good lens (24-85 D/2.8 and 80-200 D/2.8). I am debating wheter I should drop my F100 and Coolscan towards a D100. My prints are usually aroung 14x11" and I am a student trying to concentrate on fashion photography.
So my question really is: is 6Mp enough or I should wait for the next camera? Do you guys that have the D1 series use it professionally and how?
Please keep in mind that as a student I won't have enough funds to keep switching to the next camera every year.
Any advice is appreciated,

I'm in for either D100 or S2. I have a F100, Nikon, Tokina lenses and using a Sprintscan4000 to scan and an Epson 1280 to print at a max size of 13 x 19. I made my decision after I downloaded samples of 6MP fine jpegs (S2 and D60) from the Net.
Up to 13 x 19 the prints from the 6 MP samples appear to be cleaner and crispier than scanned samples.
The quality degrades when you have to do a significant amount of cropping. That's when the higher resolution from the scans (aprox 5500 x 3800) weighs in.
Have a nice day
