No apology necessary. I think in the long run, you'll see digital
SLR's come down in price to the point ordinary folks can afford them
if they want them. The use of interchangeable lenses will then once
again be common.

Most digital cameras today are only a step or two above a disposable 
film camera in my estimation: you can do only so much with the zoom 
lenses they have, though I admit there are many excellent photographs 
made with them.

Even more important than interchangeable lenses is the ability to 
have the flash off-camera or bounced from a wall or ceiling. I've 
found in film photography that lighting is often more important than 
the lens you use.

Now if the pbs-list would just take up a collection so I could buy 
that Pentax digital body I want...
