I have nothing but obsolete gear.

Great stuff indeed.

Corrected an error of selling my D700's and got one back

My Df was probably only obsolescent last year, but if I understand Nikon's reported announcement that it has finished production of the Df series, then it is truly obsolete now, and this puts a little bit more shine on the camera- right up there with the Rangefinder series and the f2 series. It's like owning a pre-war Rolls Royce motor car.

I have 2 Nikon D70s. 1 is out of order. Very small LCD screen  (don't care) and very small viewfinder, which is a bigger problem for me.

The camera is fine and really easy to use. I learned how to take pictures with a D70s. It is much less forgiving that today's DSLR when it comes to ISO noise and image cropping. If you stick a good lens on it and experiment with the settings it becomes a very pleasant camera to use. As I said, the viewfinder is the real issue I have with it.

By the time a "new" camera hits the marketplace it is obsolete, for its replacement is already being worked on.  A sobering thought.  ;D
