D70 Compatibility Questions

    I currently shoot with an F5 with five lenses and three flashes. Does
    anyone know for sure if F5 systems owners are going to have complete
    compatibility with lenses, Speedlight SB-28, ring flashes, etc. using
    the D70?

    I need a second SLR and a digital would be a useful adjunct but I
    don't want to spend an additional couple of thousand for new stuff,
    not to mention the extra weight and bulk while traveling.

    I've got my order in for the D70 kit but before I shell out $1200 are
    there any pitfalls or caveats I should know about? I've been out of
    the country and haven't had time to do much research on the subject.

    Anyone know about delivery dates yet? My dealer thinks mid-March at
    the earliest.

    TIA

  2. There are some flash issues with the D70
    To get i-TTL you will need the SB800 or the new SB600, other SB units will
    give auto/manual only with no TTL metering.
