Having to upgrade from D70 - some questions I would like opinions on.
Mar 9, 2014

Hi. My D70 gave up the ghost by coming up with very erratic exposures. I am thinking about upgrading to the D7100 based on all the good things I've read on this forum.  I do have several question I would like to hear your opinions on.

1. How long a digital cameras supposed to last? I shoot about 5000 a year.  I'm still a bit upset my D70 gave out.

2. Do people actually use the video on the camera? If so, what for. Are you able to pick out a frame from video and save it as a photo? I've really had no interest in video but if I'm missing out on something I would like to know.

3. I just bought a Nikkor AF-S 18-200 ED DX VR - is it compatible with the D7100?  It was supposed to be with the D70 but would only work in manual.

4. Is there anything useful I can do with my D70? Other than a glorified paper weight?

Thanks for your views I appreciate your input.
