    Canon 1Ds, 1Ds MarkII, and Kodak DCS Pro 14/n and Pro SLR/n and c. All cost between $5000 and $8000 and range from 11 to 16 Megapixels. There are also 40mm x 60mm digital-backs that range from 16MP to 39MP and run from about $22,000 and up (guessing $40,000 for 39MP).
    D7000, D70, CP990, CP900, FE.
    50mm f/1.8, Sigma 18-125, Sigma 24-70 f/2.8, Nikon 18-105 VR, Nikon 55-200 VR, Nikon 43-86 f/3.5 AiS, Vivitar 28-90 F/2.8-3.5 Macro, Vivitar 75-205 F/3.8-4.8, SB800.
    Ha! See, I can change...

    Wow! 39 mp. Is that finer than the grains of silver on film?

    Well, not quite an answer to your question (Rex has teased us with visions of a full frame camera for under $4k...)

    Check this out!

    Yes. I believe it is.

    As for full frame dSLR's for under $4000...

    It's already here... 13.2MP... Canon or Nikon mount?

    You realize that is a film camera, right? Resolution does not always equal a digital imager

    Only the EOS-1Ds Mark II remains of the Small Format brigade. The EOS-1Ds was obviously superceded and Kodak discontinued their FF offerings.

    There is talk of a new Canon FF to be announced at the end of this month but nothing is concrete yet.

    I think you meant full-frame on the 1Ds Mk II. While discontinued the Kodaks are still available. Look for a 4:3 offering from Kodak in the not too distant future.

    From what I've seen the new FF from Canon is the 1Ds with a couple more MP and in a lower cost package.

    Well, it is a Frankenstein monster. It is not much more closely related to an old school Canon Rebel than to my Rebel XT. Call it a Digital Imaging System that uses film. Or think of it as what a Panasonic FZ20 dreams of being when it grows up.

    It uses photochemical processes to capture an image... which means that it is infinitely more related to your film Rebel than your digital Rebel. In fact, it more closely resembles a field camera more than an SLR in any case.

    It is also bloody awesome... but I dont want to think about how expensive a print from this monster would be!
