I'm about ready to pull the trigger on a D70. I was wondering is the 18-70 lens in the kit worth the extra $200? I have a few lenses from my N70 including a 35-80 1.4 - 5.6D and an 85mm 1:1.8 D. I realize I will lose the wide angel using the 35-80 aside from that what do you guys think. It seems the stand alone price on the 18-70 is more than the $200 you pay in the kit so should I grab it at this discount?



Thanks, BC

It is definitely worth it. You will become spoilt by the silent wave motor of this AF-S kit lens (near instantaneous focusing). If you don't like it for whatever reason, the resale value should be a pleasant surprise for you too.

all of these shots are taken with the Nikon D70 and the Nikkor 18-70mm DX:
