I am a newbie who wants to progress from P n S cameras to the next level. I thought hard on this as good money will be spent. To get a nikon F5 film or digital SLR? An analogy would be: to spend a topend PDA or a laptop for the same price.
I have a few questions:
1. Which is a steeper learning curve - film or digital slr?
2. The F5 is rated as one of the best film professional camera in the world and yet it cost around $600 for body (secondhand) only while a similarly class top dslr would cost at least $3k and above.
3. Is film dead?
4. Are the accesssories for the F5 too expensive?
Your kind views are appreciated. Meantime I am hanging on to my money till I made that decision.
