So now I'm considering going digital, but I have a lot of research to do. Since I like to take a lot of shots and edit down to the 1 or 2 best shots, I think in the long run I'd save money on development.

I still am not sold on digital. It does have some technical difficulties. However, for most uses, it is great. For snap shots, it is terrific. Digital has really made picture taking popular. People who never would have bothered, are now taking pic's. This is good for the industry for many reasons.

And, with digital, you can take pic's until your finger falls off, and it doesn't cost you a dime.

The only problem with digital, is the same problem with all two years, your camera will be a relic, whereas your Nikons and Pentax will be as good as they were when you bought them.

This is the part that all the advertising and all the hype leave out. You will need to purchase a new camera about every 2 or 3 years becuase, especially right now. In about 10 years (my prediction) this will be less and less, but for now, it's moving so rapidly that it's unreal.
