So I've outgrown my Nikon Coolpix 850. It is a great point and shoot when the lighting is good and the subject is close, but in low light just forget about it. Plus, the lag time, the lack of versatility, etc. I'm flat out bored with what it can do.<br><br>I think I would really like the upcoming Nikon D70 (coming this month) digital SLR. Its probably too much camera for me right now (never even used an SLR), but I think I could grow into it and I really want a camera with more versatility.<br><br>This is an incredibly deep review of it and it sure looks nice! Waiting for that tax return, of course <br><br>So, what's not to like?<br><br><br><br><br>
Hey Trog I have a D100 and I really love it. I looked at the link, and I am very impressed with what I saw of the D70. The metering system in the D70 is better than that of the D100, which is already very good. The D70 is set up to work with the new iTTL flash system. The D100 is a little more robust and has a faster ISO rating, but to be honest I have only used the 1600/3200 settings once. They both have long exposure noise reduction (which is awsome!!!). Some little things about the D70 that I don't like are that it will not accecpt a cable release. You have to get the infrared remote release. And the D70 will not accept the verticle grip. It does have a bigger buffer, which I really like, and the automatic orientation sensor would be very nice too. Finally all this for 500 less than my D100. If I was shopping I would buy a D70 in a heart beat.<br><br>
