First time poster, so thank you all, in advance, for your indulgence.

I have been using works D70 for about 1.5 years. I shoot a lot of magazine covers and calendar shots. The resolution is just barely able to accomodate it, but I have been making it work.

I have been planning buy my own D70s, and today, when I went searching for best prices, I stumbled into the D80 (forgive me, though I use a camera every day at work, I am, by no means a camera afficianado...it is just a great tool to me). I have been doing some fast reading, and was quickly attracted by the 10.x megapixel that the D80 offers.

But, I am having reservations....

Am I correct that the D80 will not use the same memory cards as the D70?

What about downloading the images? Does the D80 use a USB to mini B cord like the D70s?

Does the same Nikon Capture software work with the D80?

Can anyone offer any tangible reasons (other than the added cost) that I shouldn't pursue a D80 instead of the D70?

Thank you so much for your kind patience!
