majority of Canon and Nikon AF stuff, howeve. And, LOTS of digital
(especially Nikon D1. The future is here already :-)"

I won't speak for the rest of Europe, but in the UK the D1 is *IT* as far as
press work's concerned. The big papers have closed their wet labs, the
images go to the picture desk via landline or GSM 'phone. If it isn't
digital it isn't in tomorrow's paper.
