i’ve had an itch for a digital slr camera for several years, but i haven’t been able to justify the purchase since, until recently, nothing came close to the price and performance that i could get from my entry level nikon n50& nothing, that is, until i saw the the nikon d70.
while it’s nearly a grand just for the body, i put the word out on the street that for for my birthday i was accepting contributions for a digital camera& i’ll admit to resorting to telling grandparents and other unsuspecting relatives that i wanted a nice digital slr camera so i could send everyone pictures of the baby.
you have to do what you have to do, right?
the best thing about the d70 is that i can use the lenses that i already have for the n50. despite that and having a little birthday money burning a hole in my pocket, i still quite bring myself to make the purchase.; the pragmatist in me wants to wait until the price drops. we’ll see how long i can hold out.
