  2. Other than its usage of SD cards rather than Compact Flash--I really dislike
    the trend of SD cards all but phasing Compact Flash out (to wit: Nikon
    converting to SD for all their point & shoot compacts)--but otherwise this
    is looking like a real deal to consider. I have lusted after the D70 for
    sometime (have a Coolpix 5700) but having just gotten the Coolpix 5700 in
    May for $500 haven't made the leap. This one could be the one that does it.

    Personally I'm a dyed in the wool Canon person, but one thing I have always
    wondered about the *ist - how do you actually SAY it??!!!

    Yes, there is. It's pronounced "ist-dee."

    I'm neither opponent or proponent for SD ... but at least they
    are smaller and allow more efficient packaging of the camera...
    I do find it irritating that these formats seem change ever so
    quickly.

    Not compact enough. Even ordinary lenses are begining to look
    huge on these bodies.
    Marketing. Above corresponds closely to a 28-80 kit lens once
    the cropping is considered. History repeating ... damnit. And I
    guess that these are even cheaper to produce than the 28-80's as
    the image circle on the sensor is smaller...

    Cheers,
    Alan.

    Hmmm, so, rather like the K in knight, the star is silent!
