Yes those older flash do not communicate with D70. The zoom head don't move, the ISO stays at 100 etc.

I tested a D70 demo unit at Nikon camera exhibition at Kuala
Lumpur. I attached my SB80DX to the D70 but could not get the it to
work on TTL mode. The shutter button would not release. I could
only get it to work when I switched the SB80DX mode to "A" or
"Manual" mode.

I also noticed that the SB80DX did not respond to the D70. Does
this mean that the SB80DX is not compatible with the D70?

I already ordered the D70. Hope that I can save some money by not
having to get the SB800DX..

Yes, as I understand it you have to get the SB800DX/SB600DX for
full automatic flash shooting (i-TTL).
