D70= much greater burst depth (actual speed is similar) more controls without having to go through menus, more current lenses, more flash choices, slightly better jpeg quality.

*ist ds= better viewfinder, more old (cheaper lenses), easier to carry anywhere, cheaper initial price, I llike the aa battery avaibility, and raw quality is as least as good -some of my shots with my m50 1.7 in raw are

If cost and size are not an issue at all, go with the d70, if they are the ist ds is a great performer.

ps the autofocus is slightly slow in very low light with my *ist ds, but about as fast as my consumer film slrs from a couple years back (rebel ti) in mid to bright light.
