Hi, I haven't done much research into Digital SLRs, just starting as a matter of fact. Currently I have a Nikon F80 with a Nikkor 28-70mm lense and a Sigma 70-300mm lense. I'm extremely happy with this camera as it has produced some wonderful photos. What I was wondering is if there is an equivalent digital version of this camera. I've noticed there is the D70 and the D100 but is there a D80?

Also are the lenses interchangable from the F series to the D series or do Digital SLR lenses have different optics/operation then the film based SLRs?

I thought maybe the only difference was in the body and the lenses remained the same.

Just did a bit of research on the Nikkon D70 and it looks like some of the older AF lenses are compatible just that certain features of the new DX lenses might not be supported.

I might get the D70 with the DX 18-70mm lense and maybe when I purchase it bring in my Sigma 70-300 and ask them to attach it to see if it works ok.
