I currently use a D70 and saving for a used D700 by next year or some newer FX by then. So is the old D2 really worth it today this late in the DSLR game? I normally wouldn't be able to afford a pro body so is it worth buying a previous pro DSLR opposed to current mid range such as a D700 or D300. I really want FX so not sure I want to invest in new DX this year.

I am interested mainly in faster speed and optional battery grip and shutter release and dial on grip. But what other bnifits will stand out over the D70 or even a newer used D200 or D300? What features will I lack in a cam this old to something I can get for equal at new or good used cost? Can you guys help me determine the spec differances between the several D2 varients such as the H v/s S for max res v/s max speed or a balance of each?

What is expected fair for a used body (if conditions varing - give examples) and what are some key things to look for?

Thankx for your time.
