I'm sure the R back will be fine and current R users will pick it up.

The question is what will people like me do. Someone who needs to upgrade
gear in the new year.
I already have some Nikon lenses and digital bodies but I also will need
some new SLR film bodies in the new year.
Right now all my film work is shot on chrome with M6's. (And a burrowed F4
if I need long glass)

Do I stick with Nikon? The D2X eliminates all the complaints I have with the
D1x and the D100 ...and based on the spec sheet is a damn fine camera. Nikon
didn't wait 3 three years letting Canon have all the glory to turn out a
dud. I THINK I might actually learn to like digital with the D2x where I
only tolerate it now.

...or do I ditch the bit of Nikon gear I have and get a R film/digital combo

...and what about that rumour of a digital back for the new F6?  :^)

These are business decision that have to be made soon by many photographers
and all this gear is really about pro use. Those that can affort it as a
hobby still don't have the same considerations as a pro user.
