On a digital SLR such as a d70 you will get an extra amount of zoom correct? How much is it?
1,5? something like this
There is a big misconception that you get more "zoom" with a digital SLR (with APS sized sensors).
What you actually get is a cropped image. You will end up with the field of view of a lens with a focal length (1.5 or 1.6) times longer but you don't actually get a longer focal length.
Of course, this really only matters if you were to print the digital file at the same ratio (sensor to print) that you would enlarge and print a 35mm negative.
So you don't get more zoom but you can view/print the digital file at whatever size is acceptable to you.
yay, I was right, 1,5
