I am looking into upgrading from my D1 to either a D70 or D100.
They look very similar in stats, though I'm not sure how frustrated
I would get without the vertical grip.
Please share with me your thoughts between the two

I had the same decision to make... I went with the D100 after comparing the two (I think the D100 is actually built better - not all plastic) . My main reason for going with the D100 is the MB-D100. The MB-D100 is a great addition with the vertical shutter buttom and the ability to use the 10-pin remote. Plus the battery options it gives you... Nikon even suggests going with the D100 if you ever think you'll need the battery back and what it has to offer. The D70 missed the boat on this one - it wouldn't have been a big deal to incorporate the MB-D100 as an accessory for the D70.
