D70 initial comments

Autofocus is sharp. Works fine with the 18-70 it came with and my 18-200 VR, through which I’ve shot perhaps 15,000 shots on my D40.

The color leaves a little to be desired by me. I would describe it as cool instead of warm like the color from my D40. The same thing I noticed when comparing my cousin’s D70 to my D40 earlier this year.

But it appears I’ve purchased a functional D70 at a fair price.

I closely compared pictures shot with BASIC, NORMAL and FINE JPEG compression and decided, as I did with my D40, to shoot in BASIC.
