Well,my Nikon D60 crapped out on me a while back,and it is gonna cost $250-$300 to get it fixed :pinch: I tried to repair it myself with no luck,so I have just been using my old point and shoot :ohmy: Anywho,I traded one of my seldom used lenses for the D70 with 28-70mm lens,2 batteries,charger,2 GB card,and a camera bag :woohoo: This guy really wanted my lens.Here's the first few(random)shots,I know that they aren't great/or even good,but once I figure out all of these damn buttons,I might be able to take a decent pic :unsure: ;)

    Great pictures Doug! know what you mean about the buttons. Recently got the wife the D300, forget about it, way too many buttons for me. So I picked up a DSC-TX5, works great for fly fishing pictures.

    Dude,

    What happened to the 60? Lenses interchangeable?

    The D70 has way more buttons,and another screen :blink: .It's a bit bigger also,but I love it so far.The memory cards and batteries are different,but the lenses and flashes are interchangeable :)

    Morning Sparky:

    At least you have a camera...Kathy fell into the pool at the hotel last weekend with our camera in her pocket...the camera did NOT survive!

    Have a GREAT day!
