I have been considering the move to a DSLR and with the D70, have been thinking even more about it. I have just purchased the 80-200/2.8 AF-S VR, and based on what I read, when used with the D70/D100, I can expect the following due to the 1.5X cropping factor;

- the effective focal length will appear as a 105-300mm lens.

- this would effectively give me a 300mm/2.8 AF-S VR at the high end.

Using this same lens with my film camera, I can achieve the same image by cropping after the fact, to the same 1.5X factor.

Are my assumptions accurate? Thanks for the help.
