How your opinion has changed in less than two years! Of course, digital photography has changed quite a bit as well.
Bien sûr que Powerdoc Ni... 1... = Nikon D100. Powerdoc knows (everything)
knows everything. He's a doctor and he's a Frenchman.
(Note for the PC police: I am a Frenchman too, so don't give me no shit.
BTW the general consensus is that the D70 will rock/is rocking already.
Right now the D70 does look much more attractive than the Digital Rebel/EOS 300D. Everybody thought that the Digital Rebel would kill Nikon in the low-end DSLR market. But sometimes it obviously pays to take more time and bring a better product to market. Canon's had me in the bag in the digital arena, but Nikon's D70 has turned my bias upside down.
Pentax, Schmentax... nah...
Maybe, maybe... I'm just an amateur who wants to take good pictures. I have no intention of making a living off photography. As I said before, my Pentax cameras have always been models of simplicity. Admittedly, they were all manual
film SLR. I've never owned (or even really used) an autofocus
SLR of any kind. That's why the move to my digital P&S was especially hard. Moving from manual focus to slow
autofocus was torture.
