Finally bit the bullet and bought a new camera - Nikon D70. Did a lot of surfing through reviews and forums to decide which digital would meet my needs. I was considering the Canon EOS300D digital Rebel, decided the Nikon was a better fit. Got it last week, was very easy to get up and running with it in auto mode (of course) but also is fairly intuitive what menu choices/buttons to use to start taking more control. Posted these into "Various pics" album.
