All I know is that's what Nikon gives the 55/65/75 series film cameras, so its presence on the D70 does not inspire much confidence. All the higher end Nikons use prisms instead of mirrors in the viewfinder, as does the D100.

Also, the eyepoint on the D70 is 18mm, as compared to 24mm on the D100: not good news for those of us who wear glasses.

It seems like the viewfinder is one of the areas where Nikon chose to cut costs....
