I think that you've inadvertently (and accurately) sounded a death knell
for the LUG as a place where professional photographers gather to
discuss the use of M gear (forgive me folks, but I know jack about the
slrs).  I'm an amateur photographer; I've spent a substantial sum of
money on my gear, but I am depressingly aware that I'll recover
comparatively little of it.  I own four M bodies and eight or nine
lenses, and I doubt that I could convert these into even a basic
equivalent digital outfit (one body--a couple of decent lenses) without
a substantial outlay of cash, which I don't have for this purpose.  I
suspect that there are many who confront the same issue.

I admire you (and the others who are making and acting on the same
decision); at the same time, I find this vaguely depressing.  

When Ted goes digital, we are lost.

But, Tina, are you absolutely, hands down, satisfied with the prints
that you produce digitally, and would you mind saying a little about how
you make them?


Amen, Jim.  My Canon D10 will be here Monday and I expect to spend much 
less time scanning and labeling.  Still have to file and caption
but it's a much faster process!  My M7 will still be used for personal
work, but everything else is going digital.  I waited for Leica but I
wait until 2005!!
