    Manual WB, Default Parameters, Self-timer
Nikon D70 Nikon D100

This is a very interesting comparison because it really does show the improvements Nikon has made in regards to image sharpness since the D100. We know that the D70's CCD has a weaker anti-alias filter and thus higher frequencies (finer details) are captured, however the side effect as we have seen are the increased possibility of moiré artifacts. Overall however it's fair to say that the D70 is a fairly significant step forward in image sharpness and detail from the D100.
