Question for the lucky few

For those lucky few who have already had the opportunity to hold a D70 in their hands, I have a silly question: what is the "feel" of the shutter release button? Let me try to explain what I mean: my Coolpix 5700 has a very "electronic switch" feel to it - you press the shutter release button lightly and it clicks at the halfway point (when it engages the AF and meter), then you press it harder and it clicks again when it triggers the shutter release. It feels very artificial and electronic to me, and I have never been able to get used to that "feel." I much prefer the more mechanical spring-loaded feel of a traditional SLR.

From the pictures I've seen, the button looks just like the one on my 5700, and I'm really hoping that's not the case.
