You'll have to do your research on lenses - Nikkor are always good but there's a ton of excellent, competitive lenses out there.

This time last year the Fuji S2Pro was considered by some to offer the best performance for the price, but the debut of the new Digital Rebel and D70 have really altered the landscape. S2 still an excellent camera, though I don't like the fact that it uses two separate types of batteries. S3 Pro is supposed to have improved dynamic range but will be more expensive than the S2. Finally, some new high-end, high-performance Canons and Nikons have been introduced in the past 6 months - but they cost $4000-$6000 (body only) and offer features that, sadly but truly would be wasted on me.


AFTER ALL THE DISCUSSION, I HAVE MADE A DECISION ON THE
NIKON D70, MY ONLY QUESTION NOW , IS THE LENS THAT COMES ON THE D70 ONE OF THEIR FINEST LENS, OR SHOULD I BUY A DX OR SOMETHING LIKE THAT TO MAKE IT COMPLETE....PHIL IN FLORIDA
