    Hi I think you misunderstood.

    Digital lens made from scratch like 4/3 actually can create the aperture and yet produce smaller lens, lighter because it is not full frame. So, the law of sizes due to focal length ratio to aperture may not hold here.

    And, anyone got any medicine or concoction help suppressing excitment and the temptation to spend on yet another new, hot camera?

    Try rat poison - permanent cure!

    Hope it has -
    built-in flash
    faster focusing than D100
    controls like the F100

    Hmmm...
    To sell a camera this cheap, sure some functions will be disabled rite?
    E.g. : no FEC, no custom WB. bleah... bleah...

    Isn't it the same for NnnX?

    Nah... think FEC and WB will be there for D70.

    i don't see any reason why not... potential hook for Nikon to get more people to buy the bigger and more ex lenses...

    anyway why are you guys talking about FEC? isn't that a Canon thing?

    Based on Nikon marketing strategy, prepare to wait for at least 4 months or more....before the 1st shipment ever reach the consumer.

    from DPreview:

    The D70 joins Nikon's current selection of digital SLR models and employs the popular Nikon DX format sensor and Nikon F lens mount. This design will allow photographers to use high quality DX Nikkor lenses, and also maintain seamless compatibility with all AF Nikkor lenses and the D70. Designed exclusively for Nikon's D-series digital SLR cameras, DX Nikkor lenses are optimized to achieve outstanding center-to-edge-to-corner image quality, when used with any of Nikon's digital SLR cameras including the D1, D1X, D1H, D100, the new high-speed D2H, and the forthcoming D70.

    Does anyone know what kind of body it is? Is it as plasticky as the Canon 300D?

    If it is, I think I will still go for D100.

    Wow..!! beautiful...!!

    If it follows the Nikon F75, then it would only have one command dial... and it would probably be situated at the back of the camera..cause F75 is at the back..

    from the picture... is it very likely that the new D70 would have 2 command dial??

    Anyone knows or seen any rumours whether the D70 will sell with a kit lens lke what 300D does??

    Im sure this D70 will be around the same price range as the 300D when first launch... but just dunno whether will there be a lens to kit with it...!

    D70 will prob be bundled with the new DX lens...

    from the Nikon press release...
    "A new DX Zoom-Nikkor lens is being developed concurrently to deliver a focal length range optimized for use as the standard zoom lens for the Nikon D70."

    May be true, but tough though. Would *you* abandon your Canon lens investments for these lenses (at a higher price though)?

    dun flame me, but while the 300D has the nice AF and CMOS chip from the 10D in a lesser body, D70 has...?

    Like what NorthernLights mentioned - it might be possible if the lenses are not FF.
