Still use my F31fd for work and still love it. I still shot with my even older Olympus C8080 once in a while for work. It takes better pics then my F31 in some cases. These cameras are still functional and useful. Can still walk into my B&M and pic up xD cards. The museum piece is the tool behind the camera, improving this tool have always produce the best photographic improvement over the decades.

Sorry ... but that's specious. Although perhaps "the tool behind the camera" has a more appropriate meaning for you, who is to say what you really meant?

I haven't seen xD cards in a long time, but obviously some of you live where they are available. Great news.

The idea that the photographer matters more than the camera is not new ... it is the same with brain surgeons. The fact that you can make do with technology from the last decade does not mean that it is somehow a great idea. It merely means that you have to work within its limitations. And for your work, the limitations are obviously not a problem.
