I want to buy a camera and first thought about getting an old Nikon F2, then I opted for an old Hasselblad. However, I need the camera urgently so I thought about getting a cheap digital SLR and postponing the 'blad. Also, that would give me flexibility and save the costs of getting film developed and scanned. What do I need it for? For communicating me & my projects (early music, please have a look at my homepage for my earnest attempts at promotion myself - I AM a musician, after all!.) After reading the "Building a digital SLR system" choices boiled down to the Nikon D40 or the Olympus E1 Review (that's 2004 - is the E-420 the follow-up?). I liked the Olympus pictures better, but the night pictures looked very dark. I'd be glad for any opinions.
