8. No can do, but thanks for the suggestion

It comes down to economics...by the time I replaced my glass with equivalent mirrorless-compatible glass, mirrorless would cost me about $1500 more than buying a new D5 SLR. And at the end of the day, the D5 will give me at least as good of results. So...buy a completely new camera system, or buy a different body and go to Hawaii next July? Decisions, decisions...

My main job at the paper is being one of those "pixel counters in the editing department." We standardized on 300 dpi. It works better for us than 150. We could PROBABLY run 200 dpi, but we run a quarterly magazine on enamel and use pictures from the paper in it. On enamel you've got to run 300 dpi.
