Hi Dev, thanks for the article on the Nikon. What a beauty. Four or five years ago I bought a new Nikon F75. I debated getting a digital camera, but at that time print film was very cheap to get developed at Costco and I knew my way around the camera having had a couple of Pentaxes and a Canon years ago. Now Costco only does digital so I have to go to Walmart and it’s getting more expensive to have prints developed. Now i really wish I had gone digital, apparently though I can use my lenses if I buy a didgital Nikon, not sure what model. That will be my next big purchase. Thanks

Nice article about Nikon D5000 for some time I was thinking about buying some DSLR camera but I am not sure what to peek between Nikon and Cannon.
