Hi,

I have two offers for cameras right now-

1. D70 (2 yrs old) with kit lens, 70-300 G lens and 1 gb CF card for around 1000 SGD (~650 USD). This one had the BGLOD and the owner got it repaired. Shutter count < 8k (claimed)
2. D70s kit (1 year +) with kit lens and 1 gb CF card for around 1000 SGD (~650 USD). Shutter count = 18068 (checked by exif viewer).

Which do you think is more worth buying?

cheers,

Maddy

Maddy-

I would go with option #2. The Nikon D-70s was a real improvement.

maddy-

In my researching, I have read that the Nikkor 70-300mm G lens is an inexpensive, slow focusing lens. It is strictly a general purpose lens, nothing like the current Nikkor 70-300mmVR lens.

I am still voting in favor of the D-70s.
