Remember what $1500 could buy you in SLR?

Nikon D40 for 382 dollars.

Here it is, in Canadian dollars, from my favourite Canadian online retailer:

Same place sells the D60 for 498 dollars, again, Canadian. 486 dollars will get you a D40 with a 18-55 kit lens.

Obviously these aren't full frames with super high ISO functionality, but if we're going to be reminiscing about the film days, then ISO shouldn't be a factor, because every DSLR beats those grain levels. Pop a APS-C specific wide angle (10-2x or 11-2x) and you've got yourself a great setup. The only aspect about it that FF surpasses is the slight issue of creating better shallow DOF.
