For the benefits of the newbies like myself, who are on a tight budget, but still want a DSLR badly, I would like to ask if the latest cam body is worth spending money on?
Mayb I will explain my situation further.
I am on a tight budget of say $1000. I have been comtemplating whether or not to buy a 2nd hand Nikon D70 which has been in the market for abt 4-5 yrs (I guess) or shld I actually save up more and buy a 1st hand Nikon D80 which is still relatively new. But seems like my budget only can allow me the 2nd hand D70
Some of my worries would be that in any case if I bought the D70 and it dies on me aft abt 2-3 yrs of use. Would there still be spare parts at Nikon to repair the cam body for me? Or would Nikon phase out the model and no longer produce parts for the D70 which would have been in the market for abt 7-8 yrs.
I also would like to what are other factors that I shld take into consideration when making the decision.
