Nikon announces D70 . . . let the games begin!

Nikon has announced they intend to release a sub $999 USD digital camera based on the N75. The information is limited but the camera will be unveiled at PMA in February, with an availability announced at that time (spring 2004?). Nikon has stated they intend to include the following features:

The image sensor continues the heritage of the Nikon DX Format (providing a picture angle approx. 1.5 times the focal length of a 35mm [135] format lens).

The Nikon D70 will inherit the Nikon F Mount, ensuring compatibility with AF Nikkor lenses already owned.

A new DX Zoom-Nikkor lens is being developed concurrently to deliver a focal length range optimized for use as the standard zoom lens for the Nikon D70.

ANd it's black, so it must be more professional than the Canon Digital Rebel.

It's black? Must be pro. I wished me FM2T be silver, 'cause she's no pro like de black D100. (My lenses are black, does this count?)

We'll find out in February, at PMA. But a good guess would be slightly faster than the Digital Rebel. Also look at the speed of the N75, it's what the camera is based on.
