    good advice? keep the crop factor in mind ... you lenses get "longer" in terms of field of view.

    digital shows a smaller angle of view than film ...

    also, with digital you more easily lose the highlights and shades. exposure is more difficult.

    oh, so that was the question?

    I think, digital is more convenient.

    it is cheaper if you shoot alot.

    resolution in prints is the same or better

    I do both.

    I have grown to prefer the crop of my digital. Makes good long lenses longer. I could never afford my fav long lens, a 600 f/4, but my 400 f/3.5 has the same reach in digital and is 1/3 stop faster. I love it! I cover wide with a 14 f/2.8. Also the crop only uses the sweet center of the lens. No worries mate!
