Since I consider the R8 and its glass the best SLR system I've used, I'm 
looking forward to getting a Digital R back into my hands.  I don't need 
AF anymore since my nearsighted eyes have become slightly farsighted and 
one frame per second is fine for my purposes.

The only caveat is, where am I going to get all that money?
