First, as some of you know, I bought an old 28-200G lens because my 28-300VR is pretty heavy and I need a lighter lens for travel. So far I'm impressed. The lens is smooth and focuses quietly and quickly. The zoom is very smooth and the lens is just a tad bigger than the 50/1.4 and probably a little lighter. It's really sharp -- witness the photo below. Not a bad purchase for 3 bills.

Digital: D610 backed up by a D1x. Quoted from an unknown source by a fellow planeteer, "Never get rid of a working D1x." I've got to agree.
Film: N90s, F3, F100, F4s, C330s. A few lenses.
Why film photography? I like shooting with the equipment. 6x6 Velvia slides from a C330 have an appeal all their own.
Why automated 35mm/Digital cameras? Event photography is about capturing moments. It often requires quick response. Well done automaton can be your friend or your enemy. It all depends on knowing what it can and can't do. "A man's got to know his (camera's) limitations." paraphrasing Dirty Harry...
