Nikon D70s

Am new to this and this is my first message to this site. Recently purchased the Nikon D50. For some reason I wish thatI had gone for the D70s with the 18-70 mm lens. Been offered a second hand D70 for £440 with a Nikor 28-100 mm lens. Don't know if this is a good buy or not? My main question is what is the dffference between the D70 and the D70s

Start reading at the first paragraph on the first page of the Nikon D70s Review here:

The D70s is the 2005 successor to Nikon's best-selling and affordable (under $1000) 6.1-megapixel D70 digital SLR introduced last year. The D70s is well suited for beginning photo enthusiasts, hobbyists and advanced users and offers a combination of superior image quality with robust performance. It takes all of the D70's features and adds a number of refinements including:
  • Improved 5-area autofocus system now has an all-area search priority to complement the single area, dynamic area, and close subject priority modes, improving the ability to acquire focus on fast moving subjects within the frame. [/*]
  • A larger 2.0-inch LCD monitor, making it easier to review images and access menus. [/*]
  • Added a port for the MC-DC1 electronic cable release (optional) which allows users to trigger the camera and hold the shutter open for timed exposures. [/*]
  • The built-in Speedlight now has a wider angle of coverage, supports 18mm lenses. [/*]
  • New easier-to-read menu design uses color-coded menus with a larger type-face. [/*]
  • A higher capacity Li-ion battery yields more pictures per charge. [/*]

:?You might want to check some of the comparison threads in this forum. I think you'll conclude that the D50 you have is in many ways equivalent in capability and picture quality to the D70 or D70s. Especiallyconsidering the £440you're talking about paying.

Look before you leap
