So being on a budget and realizing I can't justify another dSLR in the home (read Wife not convinced enough yet!), I sprung for a used SLR on ebay; I was aiming for a F100, but ended up with a N75 for about $39.99. I'm not sure if any of you have made the reverse transition, but it was comical to say the least: 1. Ruined one roll of film because I was a monkey and didn't load it correctly on first attempt. 2. Had other numerous error messages pop up, etc. But the pluses are awesome: 1. Viewfinder!!!! Love that I can frame and see EVERYTHING (or at least more than the DX crop sensors allow). 2. Shutter - just solid, different sounding, and reminded me of the Pentax my Dad used to fire off with when I was a kiddo. 3. Delayed gratification - in this day in age of everything being immediate, taking pics and messing with them on CS3 before uploading them to every site known to man (websites, facebook, flickr, etc.) and never enjoying actual prints, it's nice that I have 6 shots left on my iso 800 film to take before I go and develop my (probably) blurry and unusable shots! I also got my nifty fifty (took forever, had to order it twice since Adorama took too long): And some fun samples I took with my D40x, no post-processing, Auto WB and AUTO ISO (since I was being lazy). . . I'm def loving this new prime, and am stoked that I can use it on the film and digital bodies. . . .
