    Well, I've finally talked the money people in my family (AKA PARENTS :D) into getting me a D70 to replace my crappy Sony F505v.

    First, I have a couple of questions:

    Does the D70 have a standard connector for strobe lights?

    and

    Can the D70 use old manual nikon lenses? Cause I have a few of those (These are OLD lenses... like, Nikon F era.)

    And of course, where would be the best place to purcase the camera?

    With the D70 you need AS 15 to connect

    Actually, I have another question: Can the D70 be used with studio strobe lights? I've looked at pictures of every single angle of those camera and I can't find the port used to connect them.

    If the port isn't there, is there a hotshoe adaptor for Norman strobe boxes to connect to?

    you can always get a wireless trigger unit that goes on your hotshoe with a receiver that plugs into the flash. Beats dragging around wires anyway.
