Today's major question: Will autofocus SLRs completely replace non-AF SLRs? Answer: As surely as autoexposure SLRs replaced meterless SLRs. When? Give the process five years or so. From a dollar-and-cents point of view, the camera makers don't have any alternative. Since the AF Minolta Maxxum first appeared, AF SLR sales have beaten non-AF SLR sales silly. Camera makers aren't going to cater the whims of a manual-focus-audience if it doesn't exist. If you were a camera maker, you wouldn't either.
