    Can somebody give me any recommendations on good camera shops in San
    Diego. I am hoping to buy a Nikkor lens for my D70 and possibly a Flash
    as well.

    The lens will be most likely be a AF 80-200mm f/2.8D ED or a AF-S DX
    VR Zoom-Nikkor 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6G IF-ED. I know the two lenses are
    apples and oranges.. but the 18-200 seems so versatile.

    for near downtown, Google : nelson photo san diego

    or george's photo san diego

    There's a Calumet in North County (30 miles north), Vista.

    May be a mom and pop somewhere, here and there, but most such have
    dissolved in the face of ubiquitious BIG BOX stores (Circuit City,
    Best Buy, etc.).

    Thanks for your advice.

    Looks like I might be going for the faster lens as I shoot mainly
    motorsports and aviation.

    The advice was good - my experience knowing all of these places in San
    Diego is that Nelson's is the best choice and carries the "better"

    They excel in providing personal service "above and beyond" - prices
    are more than competitive....

    As for the lenses, it's my opinion as a happy user, that the Nikon
    18-200 VR is the optimum choice. The Nikon 18-70 "kit" lens is an
    exceptional performer at a very low price.......

    Actually, Calumet is in Escondido. Still 30ish miles north, but on the
    I-15, not State Hwy 78...
