    let us not forget something

    that most of us are dx users

    and dx depth of field is very different from fx

    instead of customary f/11 for sharp landscapes, you need f/16. and that's still fine. what about macro?

    i think fx will only be widespread if they reduce the costs down to current pricing of dx. otherwise, no hope

    its not like 5 kilos. it cant be that bad, come on .
    If anyone thinks D3 is heavy, try F3+MD-4.... maybe Nikon F + MD-dunno what (too ancient for me to know..).

    I think it is not a qn of "will" but "when". Looking at the development of late, such as D700 and the new medium format digital cameras, i have no doubt going forward DX is dead. We will instead revert somewhat back to the good old days of film, where pros will shoot on Medium formats while amateurs will be shooting in FF cameras.

    Just shoot. Don't have to think so much.

    I'll go with whatever that gives me value and performance. $$ is an important factor.

    I would rather get something I can afford now, so I can shoot right away, rather than losing the opportunity to shoot and wait till the day I can afford FX lenses or FF bodies.
    The best things in life are free.
