I asked a dealer's opinion the other day on the Nikon D70s and he felt the technology was getting a bit dated compared to the competition. i.e. most others have moved to 8+ mp verus the D70's 6 mp and in the case of Olympus the dust removal system offered advantages. He had expected that when they released the D70s that it would have been an 8mp but this proved not to be the case.

He commented further that the D200 was certainly going to be popular but lack of product availability wasn't doing anything to enhance Nikon's position & of course the price points are substantially different. Waiting lists here for the D200 run into Feb/March 2006 which rather makes it a mute point for an immediate purchase.

No doubt there are a variety of opinions out there and I thought that a thread on this might make for interesting discussion so I hope this post in no way offends anyone.

Anyone else think the technology is becoming dated versus the competition?
