IMO, like the 14n, the reviewer said it was better in the studio under lots of lights, only the N Dig needs to be teathered to a battery pack. A flawd RAW file format that won't let you review your images on the LCD & that provides you with a portion of noise even if you don't want it? A gas guzzler that needs a battery change after 50 high rez tiff images. It may be the only ff CCD'd dig slr, but who cares?
Vistek have this camera listed on their website @ $11.8K Cnd. No wonder why Canon is keeping their 1Ds price up, & they're more than justified
