Well, I finally took the plunge. I can't wait for it to be delivered! I got the D70s with the 18-70 kit lens for $799 at bestbuy.com. Now I have to decide which ultra tele zoom lens I want to get.

I'm very glad I found this site. Thanks to all who give opinions on which cameras/lenses to buy. It's really helpful to the new DSLR consumer. I feel confident that I purchased a camera that will fit my needs.

I did the same thing. Searched this site from top to bottom before getting the D70s kit from Bestbuy. What a great deal at $799.

I hope you are happy.The viewfinder is really the BIG weakness of the D70s.

very small,dark. It's still a Nikon :G

So far I've been really happy with the camera. The viewfinder doesn't bother me, I came from a P&S that didn't have one any larger. I just need to get over my intimidation of all the control I now possess :G

And you know this from personal experience or are you just a parrot who's read all the forums but really has no idea what they're talking about. This isn't a personal attack...but you should have some substance behind what you say.

I'll let you know when I get my hands on mine what I think. So far, from Best Buy and Circuit City, I like the view finder.

I got my D70s from UPS yesterday and totally love it. The viewfinder is not dark at all. In fact, I really like it. I love the weight of the camera and feel in my hand. Everything is so intuitive on this camera.
