    Hi there i was wondering if you guys could give me your opinion on
    this matter. A picture taken with the D70 and a 35mm lens (50mm
    equivalent with 1.5X) compared with a picture from nikon coolpix 8700
    which is a higher resolution camera (8 mega pixel) which one would
    print out better as an 8X10? Would the megapixel advantage of the
    8700 create a better print assuming everything was the same, shutter
    speed, aperture, focal length... etc. How about the lens quality of
    the 35 f2.8mm nikkor vs say the built in lens of the coolpix? Any
    opinions or thoughts on this. Thanks, Jeff

    Alan Browne Guest would be the right place.

    The smaller sensor and high density of the 8700 means more noise than the larger
    sensor of the D70 and the D70 provides enough pixels to print 10 x 6.6 (in.) @
    300 dpi, and of course larger at slightly lower print dpi (eg: 15x10 @ 200 dpi).
