Default Thank YOU Steve!!!!

Just thought I'd share this with the great people in these forums and of course....Steve! About a year ago, I accidentally fell into this website after searching for information on a camera for a client of mine. Because of all the help I was able to find in here and all of Steve's reviews, today I own 3 great cameras, all perfect for their own purpose (cameras in sig). Steve, you have a great site here, it's nice to see how successfull this site is, and all 'cause of your amazing efforts to keep us informed and up to date with the latest digicam news, etc...

Once again, thanks for this amazing service you offer, and I can now tell my wife it is your fault I've spent over $5000 in equipment so far!!! :mrgreen:

BTW, I just got my D70 yesterday, although I'm not a pro in any way (for now), this baby rocks! Compared to my Digital Rebel, I have noticed that it is alot easier to use, has many more features, and improved white balance! Nikon did an excellent job with this product. As far as image quality is concerned, it is exactly what I expected from Nikon. I've read reviews with nothing but negative comments, all I can say is nothing is perfect, you learn the goods and the bads for each camera you own and find a way to make the best out of every situation. I use my CP5400 for everyday shooting, partys, gatherings etc.... My Rebel for outdoor events, sports, the occasional landscape.... and now my D70 will be used for that special moment, portraits, weddings...blah blah blah!

Thanks for all the info Steve, and thank you Nikon for delivering a great camera!

Yes, I'll echo these sentiments: thank you Steve!

And thank you to everyone who goes to make up this wonderful forum community. It's certainly facilitated my photgraphic/knowledge growth.

I've read varing comments on the Rebel for sports, some feeling the 2.5 fps is too slow. How do you find it compared to the D70? I'm seriously contemplating the DSLR plunge primarily for sports, including swimming and diving. I have always wanted a Nikon SLR, but "settled for" (and I use that term very loosley) Canon. As a result, I have 28-105 and 100-300 Canon EF lenses and would probably be considered a fool to sell it all and buy Nikon. Still . . . :? Any thoughts in that regard?

I've also considered a completely different tact, the Minolta Z2 :shock: . The thought here is the 1.3MP 10fps mode would be outstanding for capturing the right instant swimming and diving, but the image quality would suffer some. Prints would be limited to no more than 5x7, but most of our viewing is on the PC or TV anyway. Thoughts anyone :?:

If I were to choose one of them 2, I'd go for the Nikon D70 without doubt. If you already have Canon lenses though...different story!
