hey i got a D70 over a D40 and im lovin that i did im not a big fan of focusing in sports which the D70 is better at thanks to the build-in AF motor and the extra AF point and since they are about the same price with a kit lens and btw the D70 is better i will and did put my money into a D70
it also make a great backup camera to a D300 or so ive heard

I would go with a D70S. Cametaauctions on ebay is very trustworthy and is selling a refurbished one for $350 (will look like new). I have purchased at least 10 things from them in the last couple years. All without a proplem. Just like Ebay, Amazon has some not so good sellers, so you have to watch out on there too.

D40's and D60's don't have the body focusing motors. So for AF to work you have to have the newer lenses with internal focusing motors. D70's and other's with the body mounted motors will AF with all the older AF lenses and the new ones. Gives you a larger choice for buying new or used lenses. Should add that D50 also has body mounted AF motor and you might find a deal on one of those too.
