    This tempts me a bit because I'd like to learn how to use Nikons: http://rochester.craigslist.org/pho/1023538175.html

    I really like being able to learn as much as possible, so I think I might pick up a Nikon one of these days if only to learn it. Looks like a pretty damn good deal. :noes:

    Does the D70 have the built-in AF motor or does AF only work if the lens has the motor?

    That's not bad, then. Hmmm, I might need to consider this. If anything, I bet I could use it for a while then resell it for just about the same amount.

    iTTL flash too

    The body is 5 years old which kinda sucks.

    Also, I won't be replacing my 40D with this, this would just be to learn the Nikon system

    not at all

    the D70 can do some things that none of today's dslr models can :mamoru:

    the lens is worth about that much

    They are completely different. When I pick up a Nikon, I have no idea how to use the damn thing. With a Canon I'm just used to it. I'd like to be able to pick up either camera and know how to use it. They set things up differently on a Nikon, so it's definitely different

    I love my D70!
    Flash speed @ 1/8000 is insane.
    The only thing I don't like is high noise in any iso over 400.

    I've only used one for about 5 minutes and from what I recall, it was different because I believe the aperture control was near the index finger and the shutter control was near the thumb. I'm sure it's not too big of a difference, although it's still something I'd like to learn and be familiar with.

    because being a photographer is more than knowing a brand

    Exactly. So why should I know that the controls and be changed around? I just want to pick up a cheap Nikon to learn it. Is there anything wrong with wanting to know how to use both cameras?

    I said I want to learn it. Who knows? Maybe I'll find Nikon to be more comfortable and I'll want to switch? I can't make that judgement with out using one.
