I purchased my D-70 in Dec 2004. In June of 2005 the shutter quit working and the camera was sent in (I purchased extended warranty). It took six months to repair and get the camera back. Just today, the same problem happened where I get an error message on the LCD screen and the shutter will not operate. Has anyone else had a similar problem? I hate to have to wait another six months for this repair!! I think this would justify replacement of this defective product. Needless to say, I am not very happy with this camera and wonder why I did not go with Cannon.
