Be patient Andrew. I am getting the D70 as an interim [backup] DSLR until some sort of D100 derivative is finally announced [ala D200], probably before the end of the year. If/when that happens the D70 will be relegated to "car duty", as in I keep it in the car for those random gruesome traffic accidents and/or car fires [carbeques], or train derailments; not to mention that remaining D100s will plummet in price.

Mike,

I'm trying to be patient, but I have a timeline that I need to stick to, the Digicam is a going away present to me, and I "get" my gift on the 26th March............ Big grin

Here in Canada I was told that the D70 including its standard lens will be priced around $1800 CAN dollars. Not bad! But I'm sure all the extras associated with the new camera will topple over $2000.
Supposed to come out in a few weeks. Mar25 sounds about right.

D100 is the way ahead for you my man.

Won't help your skills though.......just let the camera do it for you!

As what Bo said, my local store is saying that it will be in stock in Calgary on March 30th, retailing with the kit for I believe $1999.99 or there abouts. I think this will decrease rather quickly considering that a D100 body retails new for $2050.00 CAD.

I visited the Nikon showroom in Warsaw today. They said its going to be avialable after the 20th of March.As for the price, the body will cost around 1200 Euros.
That is expensive, but its going to be cheaper on some shops on the net.
How much A is there is Airliners Net ? 0 or nothing ?

Hi,
i´ve been to a photo shop today, where the D70 was presented.
They told me it will ship from March 19th in Germany. But it seems like there´s already a big waiting list...

Estimated availability according to Inca (Dutch importer) 15 April... Small market->late introduction...

Same happened with Velvia 100F, arrived several months late here (and still only available in limited quantity).

It's already here in Singapore. Packaged at S$2100 with a 18-70 kit lens, quite a nice piece of glass. Came on sale about 2 weeks back.
