I was handling an R9 today for the first time and that's what an R9 cost.
The price to get me into the R system.
Then I've got to start on glass.

I've already got the glass for the M system
It would cost me 2900US to go digital.
Which would mean I would use the system.

If the Nikon D2X hits these shores before the Epson R1D1 I may have to just
pick up the Nikon first. I've already got the glass for that too.

And figure out what to do with my Leicas as I may not be about to justify

And if the digital back came out before that Nikon D2x it might make for a
different turn in the woods.

The one least traveled by perhaps.
