Hi,

I am not sure where to post this question, but I am hoping to get some (objective) opinions from you guys, since you all seem to have so much more experience than I do.

I currently have a full 35mm set up - both digital (Nikon D100) and film (F5). Since I've been digitizing most of my photos, the image quality from the D100 and the F5 is really quite similar (I can't tell, and in fact, often the D100 images look better printed than a scanned slide from my dedicated film scanner).

So...my question is this...should I sell my F5 (along with several of my lenses) and get a MF setup? It seems easy at first, but my problem is that I have a lot of good glass that I'd be selling - my 17-35mm f/2.8, my 20-70 f/2.8, and my 85mm f/1.4, along with my F5. I'd be left with my D100, my 105 macro, the 50mm f/1.4 and my 80-200 f/2.8. I've been looking at the Hasselblad 501CW with a 80mm f/2.8 and A12 back, or something similar to that to replace my F5 and all the lenses I'd be selling.

I'm just not sure what to do...with the F5 and the D100, I feel like I have two very similar systems, and the F5 doesn't seem to provide anything too much above and beyond my D100 (I don't shoot action so the speed of the F5 is not important to me). I do enjoy landscape and still life, and street photography (candids) though. So...is this a stupid question? Any opinions/suggestions would be appreciated!!
