    I just got my D70 and I love it. Awesome for sports (mostly mountain biking
    on the Shore BC and Whislter and other sports). I don't have any trouble
    with the AF, you just have to be a little picky as to what you focus on

    The SB25 will not work fully on the D70, you need one of the newer flashes.

  4. So was mine. I sent it back in and now it does quite well.

  5. Depends on what you mean by IS. Nikon certainly does have VR lenses
    which are "Vibration Reduction" although they are a bit pricey.

    As to the F-mount, they added a whole series of electronic contacts to
    the system, yet left the lenses compatible.

  6. I use an old Vivitar 2600D and it works just fine. It may not use the
    cameras computer, but who cares. It takes care of it's own light
    intensity. Besides, the little on camera flash works quite well
    unless you are tying to shoot across a basket ball court.

  7. I'm not even sure to what you refer. They have everything that is
    apparently needed to run VR lenses which are the equivelant to IS.
    Depending on the lens the focus is quite fast.
