I am the proud owner of the D200 and although I love my D70, it made me fall in love with photography, I haven't clicked a single shot with it since I got the D200.

My glass is good and have an 18-200 on the way as my walk-around/mid-range zoom and will sell my 18-70 and rarely used 28-200. For all intent and purpose I will likely never use my D70, except as a backup. My D70 does have lots of miles on it and is still going strong. But it's value will steadily decline since this is the age of new and improved electronics.

I will be going to Alaska in March to shoot Bald Eagles and will likely use my Nikon 80-400VR for 99% of the shots--meaning I won't be needing to switch lenses or camera/lens combos much. However, the D70 would be a backup in case....whatever.

Part of me wants to cut the cord and not look back. Sell the D70, the two lenses mentioned above and their filters to consolidate and raise money for my new toys---Oh yeah, I will be upgrading my computer to handle the big files.

So I am torn. Except for the backup potential, I can't see using the D70 again---I'm spoiled

Your opinions please.
