Anyone have any thoughts on how the D70 will stack up against the new D2X? Any ideas on pricing?

Expect the D2X to be 5K or maybe more. I don't expect it to be as expensive as the Canon 1Ds or 1Ds MkII.

It isn't really reasonable to compare them. It's like asking to compare a Corvet vs. a Forula 1 car (well, this is stretching it a bit.) They are aimed at different markets and at different price points. If you need the D2X, with all it offers, then the D70 just won't do.

Its AF and metering will be better, as well it's weather sealing and more. It should be a question of what you do and what you can afford. The D2X will be better at almost anything but maybe size, weight, and usability (its interface might be more complex.) Oh, and price.

What do you want to take pictures of? How will use use them? That is what should drive the answer.
