<< Who needs a motor drive?
 My personal view:
 Pros into action/sports photography. And, just maybe, amateurs (including
 myself) who use them mostly as a glorified winder, but occasionally need
 the fast frame facility. >>

*Anyone*, amateur or pro, who shoots sports or wildlife, can benefit from a 
motor drive.  To me, however, the proposed motor *drive* for the R8 (4.5fps) 
is what I'd call a winder.  The F4 (5.7fps) F5 (8fps) and 1nRS 
(10?fps)...*those* are motor drives!
