Are you talking D1, D1X, or D1H? The D1 was Nikon's origional SLR digital camera and is a 2.1 megapixel camera. If that's what you're talking about get the D100.

Default What is your photography style/purpose?

What is your photography style/purpose?

D1 is heavily built to take field abuse - and even the original version still has amazing buffer rate to hold action/sports/journalism photos. It's also compatible with AI/AIS lenses which gives you more options than the current AF-D/G range. You also get a vertical grip and control built in.

D100 has larger megapixel count and improved controls like white balance (which was troublesome to some extent on original D1). It has almost all the latest improvements to Nikon DSLR line. But it only works with AF-D/G lenses. It's also a bit more fragile than the D1. Battery grip is extra to get vertical controls. This system is perfect for folks who shoot high-quality landscapes and slower events. AF is good, but not as good or fast as CAM1300 AF system on F100/F5/D1 series.

These are just some of the differences. Think about what you plan to use the camera for. It's not just megapixel count.
