The future. Get over it. Remember, a digital SLR is essentially a 35mm camera; you still have to know the basics in order to use it. Taking great pictures is not a matter of using or not using photoshop, it's having the eye. Great pictures come from the soul, not the equipment. Film is gone, nothing lasts forever, but the spirit of photography remains.
My D70s and the D3 I will soon own make everything clear through the 50mm lens. Digital photography is the greatest thing to ever happen to photojournalism.
