Can't make up my mind. I don't have much glass invested in Pentax (only\na zoom lens so far), no Nikon glass. I like the specs of the D70 better\n(faster shutter, larger buffer), but I like the size of the istD better\n(also it takes AA!!!). Now the D70 is cheaper but requires newer lenses.\nistD is more expensive but could take older lenses (which I hope to find\non eBay cheaper than new Nikon lenses). As I said, can't make up my\nmind!!!\n\nI think it's a win-win situation, noit sure which "win" to choose :)\n\nPerhaps I should look at financial situation of both companies to make\nsure they will be in business 5 years from now... does anyone have\ninformation about this?
