"Any word from PMA as to when D-70 will be available?"



I expected some more specific information on this to come out of PMA but haven't heard anything yet. Thanks

I just spoke with a rep from the brick and mortar Camerworld in downtown Portland Oregon. He advised they wouldn't be seeing the D70 for a few months. I asked if that would reduce the price of the D100 and he was non-committal but intimated it was possible.

I know what you mean I was hoping to hear also.
I'm glad they have not charge my C. C. for it yet. If I had not
ordered it I probably would not be so impatient.

They will hit the shelves in Japan on March 19. All the local shops have signs from Nikon stating this. As for the US, I don't know.

The manager at the camera supply store where I pre-ordered mine said they are expecting their 1st order the 2nd or 3rd week in march. He qualified this by telling me, "at least that's what they're TELLING us..."

Take it for what it's worth. I'm ready already.

I expected more from PMA also, but its not over. I noticed B&H and several others are taking preorders on-line. It probably won't be until April. I expected more news on lenses especially the 70-180 macro which has seemed to have disappeared but not discontinued. Why?

I have noticed that one online store in the UK states that the D70 + AF-S DX 18-70mm f/3.5-4.5G SG IF ED - RRP £999.99 will be available in March, but D70 Body only - RRP £799.99 will not be available until the summer.

Kind regards,
Paul

I just returned from PMA. I got an extensive review and hands on with this camera. Nikon USA says they will begin shipping the 3rd week of March.

There appears to be no shortage of this camera. Every rep at the show had a production model of their own and had been out shooting with or testing the camera.

I ran into a Nikon rep in a shop today (in Hong Kong). Here is what he said about availability:

1) D70 body only: within March US$1000
2) 18-70mm lens only: US$400
3) D70+lens kit: within April
4) SB-600: around May

I was thinking of placing a deposit for D70, but now I would wait for the kit.

Roy
