    oh, btw..

    in the words of a very pro-nikon photographer..

    Nikon have done extremely well with the D70 in features, price, and timing (I'd go so far as to call it a coup, in my opinion). However, Canon are still the dominant ones and Nikon's future cameras (D2X, D3, D200, whatever) are all, as ken rockwell puts it, "vapourware". Nikon take ages to bring their products to market - people have been waiting for the D2X since PMA2003. I hope they can deliver, because in a couple of years time I'll want to upgrade my body and I hope Nikon are still competitive then :wiggle:
