Any camera can scratch your film. Just keep it clean. Many people will tend
to blame scratches on the lab, but they never clean the inside of the
camera! Eric needs a round of Guinness.

I'm a week into my "new" R8 and I'm loving it. Viewfinder took my need for
Viagra away. Got rid of my F100 and no regrets. I shot 20 rolls through the
R8 over the weekend at 2 weddings. Dammit, now I need more lenses!

No scratches with digital, but that dust sucks!
