digerati.....

i mis-spoke in my last....i am not uptodate on camera lingo, but i think these are slr's, and my concern is switching to digital w. all the bells and whistles. 2 maxxum 7000i bodies, and 2 maxxum 7xi bodies and they produce fabulous results..(arent these slr's?)
lenses are zooms: 28-105, 35-105, 100-300, 75-300, 70-210...
i dont run out of film because i keep 3 bodies loaded all the time....
and i have limited flexibility because i cant get more than one leg
out of the jeep, since we might have to get going pretty fast...

i am not interested in any special effects stuff--the only filter i use is a polorizer....africa is spectacular enough just as it is....

i want to switch for a couple of reasons: i cant lug all this stuff
around anymore because of airport restrictions, and it's probably
time to get into the 21st century, anyway...

thank you all for your thoughts. i welcome your advice. and very much
look forward to more.



yours,
sasha
