    $700 may be a little steep. There are used D70s on Amazon for $420 (body only).

    You might want to post pictures of the equipment so folks can see the wear on any of it.

    I almost bought a D70 with the same lens for $400 with two batteries, and 2 gigs worth of cards (2 one gigs).

    Prices drop pretty fast on camera bodies - especially once a newer model has come out. There's a point in time what the resale value drops precipitously and the D70 is well past that point.

    The 80 superscedes the 70 and a newer replacement may be out soon for that. So.... not a great market for a used D70.

    IMO, market price is likely to be far less what you think. Completed sales on eBay show a lot in the $350-400 range (body only)

    It may be worth more to you to keep as a back-up body. Hard to buy another camera for what you'd sell it for.

    There are some exceptions to the rule though - the D50 is holding value well because it has features that its replacement (the D40/40x) doesn't have. It fills a niche - 'full' function in a small package - and the ability to use older screw-drive AF lenses. Small package, larger display screen.... no equivalent 'upgrade'.

    In the case of the 70, the 80 is simply better in so many ways. You can get a NEW D80 body for under $800 these days. Used ones are going for what you're asking for an older D70.
