FYI, at one our my local camera stores (Henry's), the price of the D70 has actually been posted. It is priced at Cdn$1600 and US$1250 (they have both US and Cdn prices). As a point of reference, they are selling the Canon Rebel at US$1015, which is $115 more than B&H. On their website, Henry's said the D70 is expected to arrive in the Spring of 2004, but that we can pre-order. Strange that they have the price up so early!
