Thanks for your generosity Ewe. I'm going to Tanzania later next year and so am looking forward to reading your book. I downloaded it from the Google site no problems (your website still having a coronary :)

In reply to:

photonion: DSLR is a relic of the past. Period. We got rid of the film, time to get rid of the mirror. Some of the arguments here remind me the days when people would say that film will never die, digital is for amateurs etc... Gentlemen life moves on, technology moves on, so keep in mind that probably some of you were arguing some years ago that film would never die...

I agree, the mirror is probably unnecessary now we don't have film, however a lot of us have perfectly good SLR lenses which wont fit onto the new smaller bodies, so DSLRs are the way to go for us. I love my D700, but sometimes I wish it was a lot smaller and weighed a lot less :)
