Switching from D70

On DCRP today, Jeff posted samples pics taken at Stanford from the D2X and D70s.

The color difference between the two cameras answered a few questions. The light were the same, pictures taken minutes apart, but the color difference were shocking. (Well not really; I've been seeing this difference all along between my E1 and D70.) The D2X looked a lot like the E1 and the D70s looks exactly like my D70. I bought the D70 based on all the reviews that says how incredible the D70 is, but none of these reviews ever mentioned the fact that it produces blah color because it has trouble with white balance.

I switched to the E1 a while ago because this strange color from my D70 was giving me fits. Well at least I know now that Nikon is capable of making a camera with accurate white balance, it's the completely out of reach $5000 D2X. I got rid of the D70 recently despite its addictive speed. Seem I made the right choice.
