Hi Group:

I am really looking forward to the D200. Wow, aren't many of us! But here is a question I'm struggling with...I have both a D100 and D70. I have needed 2 cameras for the wedding gigs I do a few times a year. I will need to sell either my D100 or D70 to help finance the D200. Which one should I keep? I really can't decide.

Both are equally used (each under 10,000 shutter shots) and in perfect working condition. The D100 feels better to me, has a better build, is likely tougher and might last longer. The D70 has a better flash system (iTTL 1/500 etc.) and some nicer features. I haven't needed the D100 vertical grip or MLU. I expect that either the D100 or D70 would garner about the same dollars if sold (tell me if you think I'm off-base on this).

Which camera would you people keep as a backup to the D200?
