Since switching to digital in 2006, I went back and counted the number of photos taken over 1 year - around 7-8 thousand images.

Had I used film, it would have cost me over $3K in developing fees... I bought a beautiful FA* 300/2.8 with the savings instead. It was used, but in mint condition at over $2800.

That changed my opinion of digital! The flexibility and cost savings changed everything, including my learning curve - which has been must faster with digital. I've saved at least a couple of years of learning using digital.

Same here - but without the 300mm involved :-)
