Well, first off I've never been gone, really :tongue: - let me explain: Since well over a year now I have seriously been toying with the idea to switch over to medium format. At first I have been shooting with a Hasselblad 500 C/M with a modest digital back. I liked it so much that late last year I bit the bullet and got a Hasselblad H1 with a Phase One P25+ back. Do I like it? Do chicken have teeth?? - I LOVE it!! I decided to give myself a bit of time and then keep either my medium format gear or my Nikon gear - not both (I do have an Olympus E-PL1 Micro 4/3 for light walkabout). Well, today is decision time. With a good size lump in my stomach I will let my Hasselblad gear go, as much as I totally love it. Just a matter of not keeping both (although my dear wife keeps encouraging me to). Just too much $$ tied up. So, Nikon it is!! One consolation: With this decision behind me, I drove downtown to get me a nice D3x to replace my trusty D700 :biggrin: (hey, I need some consolation here, OK!?? :smile. The battery is in the charger and I look forward to shoot Easter weekend family stuff with it. The downside: Well, y'all will have to tolerate me around here a bit longer, as I won't be going away anymore :biggrin::biggrin:. Keep your eyes on the FS forum folks, I'll be there when I have some time on my hands :smile::smile:.
