mb - just to let you know - I've been shoting annual reports since 88, stock since 89 and have a fair bit of Photoshop retouching experience. I worked with Scitech operators back in 89 on merging images for a prepress company. So although, I haven't invested in digital camera, I'm not completely unaware. But I do relize that I will have to adjust my attitude with the new digital cameras.
I've never needed an expensive camera to make money. Lenses used to more important than the body - and I still sometimes use a handheld light meter. I just hate buying/paying for bells and whistles that I don't want/need.
Do lenses with the internal motor work on the cameras with the internal motor?
