Still one of the best digital SLRs available for the price, alot of pros use it. I was split between a Pentax *istDS and a D70. I like Pentax and appreciate their history of making small, asthetic cameras. However it doesn't hold up to the D70 in terms of immediate usability or quality of lens. In fact half the reason you should consider a D70 is due to the quality of the 18-70 lens that comes with it. If you don't have an investment in any other manufacturers lenses, then the D70 is going to be a great choice for you. It's a camera that will serve you well over the next few years and hold it's value when you want to upgrade. See [...] for an intelligent review that concentrates on what the camera allows you to do rather than lab type facts and figures.
