Its like the difference between a 1980 Ford Escort and 2005 Ferarri (spelling?). I will never again miss that beautiful smile while waiting for the shutter!

Congrats... I know you will love it as I love mine.

Don't get caught like I did with submitting photos because you like the high quality and forget about the challenge! Couple of my lowest scores but nice shots lol

Welcome to Club Nikon D70... Good choice you made, the kit lens is great I wish i had the extra $$$s when i got my body only. but I have a good selection of glass now so it dont matter. thet shots you taken were excellent.

Oh yeh... dont forget to charge your battery every week or so...lol, that was my greatest shock. I went to Thailand for 4 days and didnt even need to charge it.. sometimes i forget it soo LOOOOOOOOOOOONG lasting..

Enjoy my friend as I know you will.
