POLL: would you buy a digital back for film cameras?

So we have this Nikon's patent of digital backs for film cameras.

If we wanna see this product seeing the light of day, what about a Poll?

Please, present your thoughts here.

I'll start with my own vote: YES, I DO WANT IT x

I started in photography directly in the digital age. But I did have a few film cameras (F90X, Mamiya 645), and shot a bunch of Provia for a few years.

I'd always wanted to buy a Nikon F5 and F6, both extremely gorgeous cameras, but I do not want to mess with film anymore (as I don't have my own scanner).

So if Nikon could market a digital back for these cameras, I'd buy a F6 tomorrow.

No, I don't consider a D700/800 to be the F6 digital equivalent.  I want that charm and beauty of those extremely well built film cameras.

Bottom line:  I'd buy many film cameras, and many digital backs, if these were made available.

What are your thoughts?
