I saw the moire pattern that was being referenced. It is much more noticeable when the image is sized down, but when viewed at 100% there are pieces of the pattern that can be seen if you are looking for it.
From what I am reading in Nikon's full product guide, Nikon Capture has a filter or something to correct or at least minimize this.
I would like to see Steve test this out in his final review and post an edited version so we can see the difference. If this supposed editing feature in Capture doesn't minimize this to where I think it tolerable, I will probably write the D70 off of my list and go with the Digital Rebel.
