Queston about the D70

Will the D70 use the same flash units as the D80? I am referring to
dedicated units other than Nikon's.

No, the D70 uses the new ITTL protocol. As of now, the only
compatible flashes are the SB-600 and SB-800. I heard that
Sigma is going to revise their 550DX to make it compatible with
ITTL (550IX?), so you might have a cheaper alternative in the
near future.

The D70 doesn't REQUIRE the SB-800, it WILL work with other flashes, just
w/o the iTTL feature. I've used my D70 with my SB-24 and my Bowens Prolite
100s. I don't think I'll put my old Vivitar 283 on it though as 235V is too
close to the D70's maximum sync voltage for my comfort.
