Wow! The shots at 200iso 30s is excellent. Even shots at 1600iso are not bad. There is going to be long queues in our stores for this Baby for quite some time.

Have a Great Day

Call the store but the line was engaged. Maybe too many enquiries... :)

Great, will go down to the stores today and check out the D70.

I was thinking of getting a flash as well. I already had a SB80DX.
Since the price of SB600 is not out, I am not sure which should I get to go with D70, SB800 or SB600? Any recommendations?

FYI:
D70 Body Only - SGD$1888 (exchange rate 1 USD to about 1.75 SGD)
D70 + 17-80mm kit - SGD$2288

The store where I usually shop (www.ac-foto.de) has the SB600 listed for 282 euros. Maybe that gives you some clue.

Firstly Hi to all.

My nane is Andrew and I live in Melbourne Australia. I have been looking through these posts for a while now (interested in getting my hands on the Nikon D70) and only just registered.

It must be true because only today I located a Nikon D70 and its available now for pick up im Melbourne, problem for me is they only have the body available and as I am starting out from scratch I need to buy the kit. I have emailed to find out if and when the kit will be available.

Andy

Got my D70 with the lens kit today - 2 hours after it arrived at my favorite photo dealer shop.

Also bought the 50mm/f1.8, bought UV filters for both the lens. Read somewhere that it is suppose to be good and also to protect the actual lens glass.

I am still not sure which flash unit that I should buy:
(I already have the SB80DX)
- SB600
or
- SB800

Should I just go for the latest? SB600 or get the one with the higher number 800?? Don't really understand Nikon, always confused me with those big and small numbers.

Is there a side-by-side comparison of both?
If yes, please help post the URL.

Oh yes - I paid SGD$2100 (about US1150) for the body+kit.
The battery was flat so cannot really play with my D70 now.
Charging the battery now... cannot wait for it to be completed.

If money is not a concern, get the SB-800, otherwise SB-600 is your friend.

Congrats. Seems like you're the first D70 owner here!

I wonder when we'll get them here in Canada...

Lets see some photos already! Just kidding. I'm sure everyone would like to see some more photos from the D70 on how it performs and what not.

Most of the stores are selling D70 + 18-70 kit @ SGD2,100. I'm yet another Singaporean.

The only other camera that I uses is Coolpix 5700, so obviously when I hold on the D70, it feels good, fit better than CP5700 and much better than CP5700 even when the CP5700 attached the the MB5700 battery pack. Without the MB5700 the camera is too small for my hand.

I tried a few shots at home after recharging my batteries.
Like the continous shot mode, especially when I shot 'kids blowing candle during birthday' My CP5700 can only take 3 shots and have to wait about 5-10 secs for it to write to CF card.

Few grouses though (actually my problem).
- my SB80DX cannot use TTL mode, only non-TTL auto, some recommended me to get the SB800 instead of SB600. Will read up more on the differences.
- no zoom lens, max 70mm now, cannot really shoot far objects. probably buying one soon but not sure which one. Posted for recommendation on other threads.

Over this weekend I will take some more photos. SO far it's looking good.

Overall, I am very very please with this D70 (of course I am comparing to CP5700)

PS: I literally 'live' here since end of Dec 03. During that time I was about to buy D100 but luckily Nikon annouce D70, so I waited and waited like a hungry wolf. Read more and more about D70 and like it more and more.....Once D70 hit the stores, this wolf went....

Congratulations! Let us know more about it.

I just visited my local store (in Hong Kong) today. My D70 will be arriving next Wednesday. Can't wait to try it out.
