With all due respect, I am extremely happy with Firewire800, regardless of your attempt to make me regret the day I bought it. And after you get connected with USB 3.0, there will be something coming down the pike in a couple of years that will shatter that transfer speed and make it obsolete, and when that happens, you will be here touting that, too. The ultimate "gear-head" approach to this - gotta have the best and fastest and gotta have it yesterday is a futile attempt to keep up with the ever-accelerating pace of digital technology. If FW800 has been the fastest card reader for 8 months until the next-gen USB, then, yes, I'll agree, it has been a short reign. And I'll probably ditch it for USB 3.0 at some future date, but in the meantime, FW800 is perfectly fine.
I've got a blazing system (for me) and I don't feel it's lacking in any area for my work. There will always be the next-gen, always. Heck, I've got a D300, should I have waited for the D300s, maybe I should wait for the rumored D900, no, maybe I should wait for the D900s, no I'd better wait for the D4 series to come in 2011, no, maybe I should hold off on the D400 and wait for the D400s, no, I've got it, I'm going to wait for the D35000s because it will have the 35Gigapixel quantum sensor and one zoom lens that goes from 10 to 1200 mm., etc., etc., etc., etc., etc. ad infinitum.
