Okay guys, can I come in now? I read every word of this thread hoping to find something conclusive on this titillating subject. First, tho' the memories are beginning to fade, I must admit I spent much of my youth - actually all of it - using film, [why do I get the feeling some of you are too young to remember when digital was not an option] I will say i was impressed with the rationality, and with the humor, of some of you, but lacking - from a woman's point of view - any clear cut winner as far as cameras go, I elected to base my decision on camera-users instead.
And here I must admit I read seakayaker's response about 3 times .................. okay, four. But just to be certain I may read it one more time.
Thanks for the amusement and the bemusement. Carry on men.
