I'm having quite the hard time deciding whether or not it's worth it for me to make the jump to digital right now. I'd appreciate any advice. I realize what side you guys lean on, but gimme some honest opinions. Back story: I'm mostly an amateur photographer, but I have sold my work in the past, rather successfully, and I actively enlarge my work to display in my own house, and for my family. I have enlargements currently hanging on my walls in 24x36 print size. I own all Minolta equipment, consisting of two Maxxum 7 bodies, a 28-90 and 70-300mm, along with all b+h filters, and a full package of other equipment. I only shoot color slide film, 99% fuji velvia 50 or 100. Black and white varies, depending on the look i'm going for. I also have a coolscan 4000. My concerns are this: 1: The Minolta DSLR line isn't top of the line. It's only 6.1mp, and they're not making digital anymore, so it's not gonna get any better. 2: If I start over with a new brand, I'm going to have to spend >$3k, just to get back where I am right now. 3: If I stick with film, I can use a good portion of the money I was going to use to go digital to expand my equipment, mainly to get a good 17-35mm with the correct filters. 4: Being a film guy, I have reservations on moving to digital on two specific fronts - print size and sensor cropping. I'm scared of both of these. The idea of losing some effective focal length scares me to death, mainly because i'm a landscape photographer, and getting wide is vital in a lot of shots. As far as the printing, can you get 24x36 off of a digital picture? What megapixel camera would you need in order to get this? I do have access to a Epson 10,000 printer at my job, so I can physically print that large if I can get something that'll look good... If you're still reading this, thanks! Any advice you can give would be awesome!
