Today went to SLS to jalan jalan. Visited AP, was browsing and overheard several customers enquiring abt the D70. Customers was told no stock. Have to "Chop". Went back to MS color in AMK, chatted with the boss, he ,mentioned D70 in his shop all snapped up.......

At the price of S$2,050.00 wif kit lens, very tempting leh......

The design and pricing for the D70 is a rather brilliant stroke from Nikon. Spec-wise, it's not a *******ized version of the D100, and price-wise, its attractive to a large market, whether you're a seasoned pro, or a newbie at photography, the D70 is priced very competitively to appeal to almost everyone. Even saw a few rich uncles who buy the D70 at the shop, thinking its a high-class P&S-type camera :bsmilie:

Buy buy buy! Why wait?

D70 so cheap yet so amazing.

D100 is to be replaced. And the new product price point will be cheaper than current D100 price. Hence no point buying D100. Just go for D70, sure no regret. All my newbies friends are enjoying their D70. Nikon strike gold this time.

I beg your pardon, as far as I know AWB in D70 is excellent compared to some other cameras.

I just got my D70. I agree that the AWB is way off. I have no doubts about that. And that is comparing to a prosumer F828 that is spot on everytime, so often I take it for granted.

Just got mine from TK Photo today. Looks like it's the beginning of investment for DSLR gear. Tried it on my way home with the default lens. Whole world of difference from my previous camera.
 

I am still using the cheapo < $50 tripod. Can someone educate me those manfrotto carbon fibre tripod and ball head, what good are those over a cheapo tripod? Also can recommend me what tripod to buy and what price roughly?

Well like a pretty girl with blind eyes you need to explore more. Understanding the D70 limitations and work beyond its limitations will make you a better photographer.

Cheers
