    Hey there,

    I'm writing because I'm curious to see if anyone has any input on a film SLR camera(s) I am considering.

    I'll start from the beginning, I have a D70 with the following lens'

    Sigma 70-300 apo super macro II
    kit lens
    50mm 1.8 prime

    ...and an sb-600 flash.

    My question is..I am looking at adding a film slr and dont wanna spend an arm and a leg. The n55 and n70 are my contenders. I'm wondering if any of you have any advice as to which one would be a good one to get, with saving money in mind. Is the n70 THAT much of a difference in performance and capability than the N55???

    Also, Can I interchange my digital lenses above on one of the two film above? How about the flash?

    Thanks for any input!

    -Take care -Jared

    If I were my call I'd go for the N70. From what I understand the N70 will give you much more control.

    And yes your lens will work very well with either camera. You just won't have the 1.5 mag factor to deal with.
