Kodak has a digital camera based on the Nikon N90s body; the N90s is
apparently a favourite with journalists, and this made it familiar to those
mose likely to buy. Fujix also has a camera built along the same lines. Both
are really nice, mega-pixel cameras, but this Summer, I asked the price and
it was in the neighborhood of $13K, and as my Ole Daddy use to say, "That's
a nice neighborhood!" Lent new meaning to the adage- if you have to ask the
price you can't afford it! I think I'll continue to use my Leicas and scan
in my photos! $13K would buy a LOT of Leica glass!
