Check out this web site: http://www.luminous-landscape.com/ It has a definite Canon tilt but tons of good information that's not camera specific and I think I found a link therer to article that compare digital to film: digital result was superior. I'll try to track down the link.

Thank you, all!!!!

I've got the point.

I think in a couple of days I'll get the D70, then I'll have much more questions)

An onemore thing: I can't find - does the D70 have a mirrow lock-up mode?

Only for cleaning purposes. You cannot take a photo with it, locked in the up position.

Wow that sounds odd, if the camera can do mirror lockup for cleaning you would think it could also do it for image taking.

It is very useful function when connected to a long lens or telescope.

Here's the link : http://www.luminous-landscape.com/re..._vs_film.shtml

Compares Canon D30 to ISO 100 film.

There is also another article call "Ultimate ShootOut" which I haven't read yet, but compares digital 35 to medium format film!

Good article, and when you consider that comparison was done with the EOS D30, a 3mp camera with a sensor much smaller in both physical size andpixel countthan the current aps-c sized sensors intodays cameras. It is quite amazing.

Thank you, AII!!!
Yesterday I got IT!
First impression - a marvellous device.

Now -study, study & study...

The controls are extreamly handly, except, may be AE-lock button -a bit too fare for my hand..
