Good for ya then.. But I think there's some fundamental problems if a manufacturer can hit such a grossly high rate of problems (defect?)..
I agree it's a nice camera for what you pay but I'd certainly not like the fact that if I upgrade my firmware, there's a good chance I'd get this CF card error or FCB problem one day..
As Murphy's Law applies, it's going to be when I most need the camera....
Lack of FTM on the lenses is also another gripe I have.. As with lack of metering on manual lenses on the body..
My personal policies wouldn't allow me to get the D70(s) either.. Either the very bottom (D50) or the top few (D2 series).. For the same reasons, I'd be looking only at the 1Ds series for Canon..
