Nikon Photography Gear

I thought I would post my current photography gear (and later, my wishlist!)
This obession all started when I "went Digital" in May of 2003 (wow, almost 3 years ago). I purchased a Nikon Coolpix 3100, based on the Best Buy's comparison of pictures taken with various cameras. Plus, the sales person claimed that most people bought Nikons and that this one was a best seller. Hmm.... now knowing a little better, it seems as if more people buy Canons, but that really is besides the point.
They had several 8x10 pics and what struck me was that Nikon had an older Coolpix model, at 2MP, which looked as good as the 3 and 4 MP pictures. Thus, I was sold on the Nikon.

Now, I do like my little Nikon P&S camera, but like all Point and Shoot cameras, it suffers from the dreaded lag time and really stinks at action shots - they are all blurry! So, in early 2004, I started to research SLR's, and just HAD to have a Digital Camera. Nikon was just about to release its first "prosumer" Digital SLR - the D70. And that is what I have.....

DH likes to call it the Nikon 5K, in other words, I paid $5000 for it..... HA! Not quite, but if he REALLY wanted me to spend that much, I am sure that I could!
OK, I bought it with the Kit lens, a 18-70mm f/3.5-4.5G. Last year, I added a higher zoom lens: 70-300mm f/4-5.6D -

That's my current gear. I'll post later about my Wishlist!
