My experience with these (I have a D30 and I've shot with the new Nikon) is that
they have less exposure latitude than film by a couple of stops. Since I'm
working in an industrial type of environment, where I don't have a lot lighting
control, and often what I'm trying to shoot will be dark, I think I need what
film offers.

I'll have to investigate digital media and how it is handled in this
environment. Probably with great paranoia. 

But it's a good idea and I'll do some shooting with a variety of cameras in
mocked up evironments and see what happens.
