Imay be one of the few who has a D70s still going strong, and just for having it so long, I was really able to understand it inside and out, and take advantage of everything it has to offer. It still has a lot to offer and I'm keeping it as a great all around 2nd camera. But I do plan on getting to D7000 as soon as it hits the rack! It seems like new cameras come out just about every few months. Being that mine was introduced in 2004, I'm looking forward to the change. Having the complete understanding of the 70s, and using it all those years, should really have me pushed into the AWE factor when the d7000 is out!
