The situation you describe is not the situation I'm reffering to. What I'm talking about is when people are contemplating a product the DOES meet their needs, but they're worried about future developments of new products. Therefore they hesitate acquiring a product that will meet their needs. You do not fit this paradigm with regard to the 3000 because you're saying that it would be a step backwards. > If a new model will be coming out in a > few months, I'll gladly wait, and find work- > arounds in the meantime. But it doesn't sound to me that the 3000 is a consideration for you, regardless of new developements. > > As to the "corollary" with digital cameras... > maybe you're right.

It all depends on print size. I still contend that some of the higher quality consumer digital cameras will produce prints that will be very competitive with 35mm film SLRs at 4x6 inches, maybe even 5x7. After that, differences will be progressively more apparent. === Explore potential income opportunities with Greer and Associates at http://www.ibocity.com/greeraa.
