As a people and street photographer, I'm somewhat less than enthusiastic. I
live in the 24 to 50mm range. To get the equivalent of my 28/2.0 lens I'd need
a 20/2.0 - anyone know where I can find one? I'll look at digital cameras when
they have full-size sensors, and not a moment before.
Until then, Provia 400F and an LS-4000 rule.

Keep in mind that just because a sensor is smaller
than 24x36mm doesn't make your lenses obsolete. It
makes them telephoto, and comparatively high speed at
that. The 200 f2.8 might end up a 300 2.8, which can
costs thousands of dollars. It is all in how one lloks
at it. If I were a sports or nature photographer, I
think I'd be in hog heaven with the magnification
