That's good to know - some guy at the camera shop told me that they were an oddball size and wouldn't work. I've seen the Nikon camera backs without any lenses go for a few hundred bucks. At least I'd be up and operational until I could get better lenses.
I actually didn't say I WANTED a cheap digital camera - I said I HAVE a cheap digital camera. I want a really nice one. Maybe I'll use my upcoming honeymoon as an excuse to buy one "Honey, we can't go to Belize without at LEAST a 5 megapixel camera. Think about it, when is the next time we're going to be on our honeymoon."
