Need advice on which one should I get. I'm so ready to but a pro digital camera this week. This is going to be my first pro digital camera so I want to make sure that I will get the right one. I have been bidding on Ebay for D1 but for some reason always got outbid. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] Then I remember that Fuji S1 also using Nikon lenses. I looked on Ebay they seem a bit less expensive than D1. Why not Fuji S2 or Nikon D100? Money issues.. So.. I'm thinking to go with either S1 or D1. Just want to get used to it with digital world first.. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]
Looking forward to your opinions guys..! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

If you're buying used -- I'd buy the D1. The body that was converted to make the D1 is much better than the N60 body that was used to make the S1. The sensor in the S1 is better -- but the body is not as tough. If it's on eBay you never know how much use the camera has had -- and the D1 is going to last longer.

However, I do have a "low milage" S1 body that I'm willing to sell for a very attractive price if you're interested.... I have the original packing materials and all the accessories.

I shot side-by-side comparison images using the same lenses and lighting setup when the S1 and D1 were new. The S1 clearly blew the D1 out of the water image quality wise, but my co-tester, a photojournalist, was concerned about how rugged the S-1 would be. My take (and I'm not a Nikon user anymore): if you are reasonalbly careful with your gear, get the S1 with this caveat. Go for the best price, whatever is cheapest; buy it.
