Wait, there is medium format digital back that is nice, or until the next great things come along.
OK, I'm being facetious.
But seriously, my advise is to buy whatever camera you are interested in. Buy the F717, its a good camera and you have already rationalise it from within. I think you are here to get final affirmation from us that it is capable of capturing great images. Indeed it will, as your visit to some galleries have shown. I will be the last person to dissuade you or confuse you with another camera model. If you have come here saying that you saw some great gallery of some photos taken with camera X from brand Y, the advise will still stand.
Stop pondering over camera choices, and just go out and take the photos you want. Learn some techniques and choose the genre you wish to explore. Go on to experiment and capture those great shots you aspire to.
At the end of the day, month or year, look at your results. Does it satisfy you? If it does, do remember to post at ClubSNAP to share, and remember us when you are rich and famous from your work. If not, was it your lack of technique, or equipment limitation, or just a lack of photographic eye? If it is technique, easily corrected by reading and suggestions from the gurus here. If it is camera limitation, well, time to upgrade (Boy, do we have some good deals for you today and everyday at the Marketplace!). If it's the lack of compelling vision or creativity, the camera is still of use as a means to get family snapshots for those special moments.
You have very little to lose now. It will be different if you have actually caught the photography bug, for which there is no known cure..
