    Do you really need a 24 MP cam on DX????

    i agreed with you too!

    Now D2 series is more affordable then last time D1 series when the hundred/40/50/60/70/80/90 series are out.

    D100 is launch much earlier then D70, not later, the launch price is $3800 iirc.

    during the D1 and D100 time, Nikon don't make any DX lens yet, so either get a 17~35f2.8 lens or the 18~35f3.5 lens. the flash is SB28DX at that time, than later came out SB80DX.

    Nikon launches D70 together with a few DX lenses, and SB800

    Wow Nikon history 101 Everyone knows so much.

    I thought there were a couple of DX lenses that were released before D70's arrival. Should be the 12-24DX or 10.5 fisheye.

    So according to sammy888, D70s came out 2yrs after D70? And the improvement is so minor? Really a far cry from today where brand new stuff comes every half year or so.

    You are correct.

    D100 was released on 2002
    12~24 lens and 10.5 lens were released on 2003
    D70 kit was released end 2003
    17~55 lens and 18~70 lens were released on 2004

    D60, sadly the noise was absolutely disappointing.
    since then, changed to a canon 40D and been with it all the way.
