My wife has been using my older D70s for a while, but it's getting just a bit long in the tooth for her.

I'm leaning towards getting her a new body so that she can use my lenses when she want's too, and the D3000 is on my short list. (Along with a refurb D40).

The D70s isn't too big for her, but she would like a body even a bit smaller than that. How does the D3000 feel in the hand? Does it feel smaller/lighter than the D70?

I probably won't be able to go to a store to handle one before I get it for her as a gift, so I'm asking here. (Outage schedules:Great overtime, no free time!)

Thanks for any help/opinions!
