Would you say the greens are better now, no more "yellow" problems?
I'm guessing that the answer is "Yes" after seeing the samples off
the Japanese review sites.

Hi David! yes, the greens are nice and green as they should be. Hopefully in the next week or so I can post some actual pics with the camera, as I've been just messing around so far and don't have anything I'd like others to see yet! The RGB histogram is a god-send for my reds too.

I have a D70 also, but bought a D80, and here's why:

  • Lower noise.

  • Much better white balance, especially Auto White Balance.

  • RGB histogram so you know exactly what that pesky red channel is

doing.

  • More MP (not much, but I'll take it.)

  • More dynamic range.

  • Much better IR suppression (so AWB is way better and blacks stay

black)

  • Shutter delay (kinda like MLU, only the delay is automatic (hit

the shutter once and it swings the mirror up, then exposes...don't
have to press once for mirror up and once for exposure).

  • Much bigger viewfinder.

  • ISO 100.

  • There are more, but I can't remember them all right now.
