just some observations, and a question that i understand we wont have a definite answer on till we get a production model.. so please no "hold ur horses, we dont have one yet" posts just some opinions and and pure guess-tulations(like that?)




"The D70's advanced System LSI processor is programmed for next generation performance to produce the finest in vivid colors and clarity, while maximizing the speed of file compression, memory buffer handling, simultaneous recording of JPEG and NEF (Nikon Electronic Format) files, and near-instant LCD image display."

- Nikon Euro press release

&

"The D70 incorporates a next-generation 6.1-effective megapixel DX Format CCD image sensor that produces 3,008 x 2,000-pixel images, and is optimized to deliver a wide dynamic range and superbly sharp details."
- Nikon US press release

any chance this may be telling us that the softness of images right out of box that the d100 has, is not a part of the d70, and that the pictures will be sharpened more as in the s2?



also noticed...

"Built from ground up as a digital SLR, the Nikon D70 offers tremendous value to consumers by incorporating many advanced features and new innovations that make photography with the D70 faster, easier and better."
- Nikon US pr

wasnt that OlyE1's claim to fame?

i touch your finger
know your darkness
your passion takes its toll
