    Thom Hogan has written a complete guide to the Nikon D70, an e-book in .pdf
    format (on disk) cleverly titled "Complete Guide to the Nikon D70" . Thom is
    an excptionally clear technical writer, and he is honest about pros and cons
    of the cameras he reviews, even to the point of irritating Nikon a little.
    Definitely no-spin books. I have his other books on the S2 Pro and Nikon
    D2H. They are exceptionally well-written, very comprehensive and extremely
    useful. I have no doubt that the D70 e-book is the same.

    Look at http://www.bythom.com/d70guide.htm
