I have a Pentax SLR with two lenses, and I want to buy a DSLR.

After reaserch I decided that t two cameras that match my requirements are the Nikon D70 and the Pentax *istD.

Can anyone help me make the decision?

Had similar problem. Went with Nikon D70. I guess my decision was based on the 1.5 factor for lenses (my 28-80 becomes 43-120) - I need wide angle... Other reviews thought the Pentax produced too softphotos and body was too small. Plus, couldn't find anyone local to put my hands on it to try it out. I will always keep my Pentax for film shots, if I ever go there again!

PS: Keep in mind the DSLR is a BIG camera - not for snapshots. I found that I took more picture with my point n shoot Kodak then my SLR. In fact, I'll probably buy a 4mp Sony or Canon for that purpose.
