    How does the Nikon d70 compare to the d100? What makes one better then the other?

    The only thing that the D70 lacks that the D100 has is a metal body. Just about everything else has been improved on the D70 since the technology is 2 years newer.

    newer technology and improved bugs.

    it's a bit off topic but I got a simple question. Is it true, that the D70's lowest ISO setting is 200, if yes, why? And what about the D100? Any help would be appreciated.

    The lowest ISO is 200 because that is the lowest optimal sensativity for that particular sensor. Anything lower would have not gained any quality in noise.

    in my opinion the D100 has two advantages for the D70, the build quality, like voodoocat said the D100 has a metal body and also you can get a verticle shuter release and grip for the D100 and not for the D70 :(

    Is the metal body that big of a deal for an average Joe? I'm not really going to shoot on location for National Geographic. I'll admit the verticle grip would be nice but sooner or later it could be had.

    For the price difference and the added features it's a great buy.

    you forgot one MLU that is a must have on the next firm ware upgrade or someone needs to hack it. It is a simple thing but I want it so much!!!!

    Not for taking pictures... only for cleaning the sensor. It'll have to be a firmware hack since Nikon said they have no plans to add a MLU. They claim the mirror goes before the shutter eliminating the need for MLU.

    OK so being a bit of an ignoramus here, what can you do with MLU for taking photos?

    Well with MLU, once you compose the image you lock the mirror to prevent any blurring caused by vibrations when the mirror slaps the camera housing.
