    I'm sorry if I'm out of line here, but I thought the whole idea of these
    groups was discussion...if someone wants to discuss something, why is it
    that smart alecs have to shoot them down in flames??

    As for the original question, I have had my D70 for 2 weeks now, and while I
    havent done as much shooting as I would have liked (damn Melbourne weather)
    it seems to be a very responsive camera.

    THe only problem I found was some funny patterns in the background when I
    did some test shots with the 70-200 VR 2.8 coupled with a TC20E, but I think
    I may have had the VR settings wrong, as I havent been able to emulate the
    problem again.

    The other issue I have is the speed of the shots, but that is a personal
    thing as I went from an F5 @ 8fps to the D70 @ 3 fps....and before anyone
    asks why would I downgrade from the F5 it was because my equipment was
    stolen and I didnt have insurance, it took me 3 years to save up for this
    gear, so I got what I could afford.

    As far as I'm concerned it is a great camera for the dollars (very good
    value for money)

  5. Do you find the 70-200VR hunts a bit when focusing?

    Seem to have this problem with my F5.

    Yes I did find that in low light, I did some reading and I'm going to do
    some experimenting with different being the infinite setting.

    crash and looking at what remains.

  7. Only long lens I have is the VR 70-200 and the regular 80-200 both 2.8. I
    must try the regular 80-200 and compare.

    Did you have a lot of problems with the f5? I tried a few long lens on it
    and found it hunted all the time. My old f4 worked better (Sadly I disposed
