Do any of you regret getting rid of your old DSLR?
11 months ago

I'm trying to simplify my collection of cameras... (maybe I'll actually upgrade one of these days)

The D70s has high flash sync capability and commander mode, so I don't want to get rid of it.

If I'm honest with myself, I'm afraid the D40 simply just has sentimental value associated with it and not much else. It sits on my shelf and collects dust. The shutter lag is horrendous. Out of camera jpgs are awesome, but I don't shoot jpg anymore. period. .. and as much as I'd like to believe it - I don't think that D40 has tremendously better high iso performance than the rest of the cameras that I have.

Philosophically, I have a problem holding onto something that I don't use anymore.... but I'm curious... do any of you regret getting rid of your old dslr? if so - which model?  Was there ever a DSLR that you were relieved to get rid of?
