After reading the whole article and looking at the test photos I would say things are looking very good for the D70. I hope they will tweak the exposure and WB a bit because things look a bit underexposed. I'm seriously considering this one because I do do a lot of low light shooting with no flash and the D100 couldn't handle the high ISOs in terms of noise. The only other thing that bothers me not just with the D70 but with other digitals is the depth of the image and dynamic range. Would like to see more depth in the shadows and more detail in the highlights. They are getting better in this department, but it still needs work.
