"RE: Synch speed"

The D70 has a different type of shutter. Practically no one uses it any more. Longevity was an issue apparently.

As to why the D600 has a 1/200 shutter when most other models are 1/250, I cannot say other than it was probably a cost saving feature. I grew up with 1/60 or 1/125 synch speeds, so it's all great to me!
