Just the opposite for me. Cameras are tools and I'm a right tool for the job type person. The bigger cameras replaced 35mm for me some time back but i always kept my Nikon system for magazine requirements etc. When the Olympus digital got to be as good as 35 for those jobs I dumped the Nikon on Ebay. For a big loss I might add as everyone else is doing the same thing right now. The only MF that's getting used much is the Minolta Autocord simply because it's awesome on the grandbabies. But the fun cameras are the 8X10++ ones with the big brass antique lenses. That's what makes the world go round.
