Howdy y'all. There's a new member to the Nikon family of photographers. I've been looking at DSLRs for the past 4 months and finally went into Ritz Camera to check out a few. I looked at the Canon Digital Rebel and the Rebel XT and wasn't a big fan of the size of the camera. I tried a D50 after that and it just didn't feel right. Held the D70 and it just felt absolutely great.

Also came with a $100 rebate so in the end I got the kit with the body and f/3.5-4.5G DX lens plus a 1GIG highspeed CF card for $1,300 out the door. A bit expensive for a college student like me but I have enough in my checking (enough to drain it completely that is) to cover it.

Right now the battery is charging up and I can't wait to put this into action! I'll be back later with a few shots.

Battery is all charged and I've been having some fun. This thing freakin' ROCKS!

Just updated the Firmware to 2.0 for both the A&B and didn't have any issues, everything updated nice and smoothly.

Hello Robo,

I bought D70 today like you!

I paid 1100 euro for D70 + 18-70 f3,5-4,5+70-300 f4-5,6

I hope it will be a good camera!



Enjoy



Ciao
