I really the C. v.N debate is pretty much  back to where it was 
before digital entered the picture. Zealots on both sides touting the 
perceived advantages and sensible people in the middle picking the 
equipment that will do the job  they need to do and fit with the 
equipment they already own.

90 % of the time a Nikon d70 gives me the imaage I need at least as 
well as a Nikon Coolscan 9000  + my Leicas and Velvia. or TriX ,with 
a lot less trouble. Sometimes the Leica is worth it. Getting the 
image that you want is what all this is about. I bought the D200 
because I wanted to use my MF Nikkors.I have several that I like and 
the D200 works well with them. Not perfectly but well.  I probably 
won't buy another digital camera for at least 5 years. Because what I 
have does the job  that I want done. Whether Canon does it "better " 
or not.
