Long time lurker, first time poster here. I've been enjoying the quality of the discussion on this forum for some time so I thought I'd finally seek some advice.
I bought a D70 when it first came out and I've loved that camera but it's time for a change. I went shopping for a new 70-300 VR lens (don't ask what happened to the old one :( ) and left with much bigger plans in mind. I now want to relegate my D70 to backup duty and get a new camera.
The price of the used 300 hasn't dropped quite as quickly as I thought it might with the 300s out but really that's what I'm struggling with now. Do I shell out the extra coin to get the new S or do I save some bucks and go with a gently used 300. Since I'm getting the lens in any case, that $200 rebate does help to make a case for the S. I will not use this camera for video - I have a perfectly good solution for that already so that feature does nothing for me. I *do* like the idea of being able to use the SD cards since I've got a handful of top quality SD cards already and my CF cards are starting to cause me trouble (camera can't read it, eject, reinsert, reformat, etc etc). Finally, I need to make a decision in the next two weeks as I need this camera by the end of June.
Appreciate any feedback you care to provide.
