I would like to get some opinions on what camera would you choose between the D100 or the D70 although the D70 is a newer product im being told that the D70 has better options and a better camera .
Any help would be appreciated.

Lindy and Scbriml
I thank you for the replies .
I don't have money to burn but i would like to get something that will improve my chances of getting a pic excepted on anet.
Im trying to justify bundling 15 future Christmas presents into 1 so i can purchase the camera
Ops although the D70 is a newer product im being told that the D70 has better options and a better camera .

I've got both models. I bought a D100 in July 2002 and carried my older film F100 as a spare body, but the fact is that I only made three or four rolls in two years since the D100 purchase, so I decided to sold it and bought a D70 in exchange (by adding less than 100 Euros).
I was wrong: the D70 couldn't be my second camera, it's now my first body and 90% of my photos are made with it, specially action shots (with the 80-400VR attached). I use the D100 for ramp shots with the 28-105 or the 18-35.
Here are the D70 advantages for me:
- D70's bigger buffer allows me more shots in a sequence (I shot mainly RAW)
- Metering is much better. The D100 tends to underexpose, specially in low light conditions (Though you always can adjust exposure or shot manual, like in old times )
- Compressed RAW (half the size of a D100 NEF file!)
- Better LCD and zoom display
- Focus confirmation by a beep
- You don't need an AC adaptor to clean the sensor (even cheaper )
The D100 also has its pros:
- Better build quality
- Better noise performance (at least to my eye)
- Two memory banks for your preferred settings
- Wider ISO range
Anyway the D100 is an excellent performer, but if you are money conscious go for the D70...
There is a very fine line between 'hobby' and 'mental illness'.

I have the D70 as well, and I realize the following is way off topic but seems relevant in the current topic because there are so many D70 owners here...so please indulge me
My D70 has a nasty habit of exposing the first frame in a rapid sequence ok and then vastly underexposing the following frames. I've tried different lenses with the same result. Does anyone else have this problem? I shoot with center wieghted meter and have tried all the settings for the spot size.

You can upload one custom curve to the body and use it (select it) but you must have Nikon Capture. Here's a link on info about the WhiteWedding Curve and how to install it but it's the same procedure for any curve you decide to use.
