If I get a D70, can I use the 420EX on it? TIA for any comments.

Nope, it's a N*&@^.
The 420EX is for Canons....
It may or may not even fire it.

No.. The only flashes designed for it are the SB-600 around $2?? or the SB-800 $330. Some other Nikons will work, but not in i-TTL.

Damn you Canon! If the 300D had variable flash output
my decision would have been made already!!! Why did
you have to disable that feature??? And I can even
live with the crudy plastic silver color -- I would have just
painted it over black myself.

You'd be suprised. I'm not saying it would fire, but I mounted my 420EX on my Contax G1 and it fired full output. I had to calculate exposure manually. There's a main pin on most flashes that triggers it to fire that correspond on many different brands.
But the short answer is that you'd get completely no control of the flash output if used on a D70 AND assuming it fired in the firs tplace.

You might be able to put porsche wheels on a VW, but it won't drive the same.

Have you considered the 10D? You will never get better color reproduction from any Nikon including the D1 Series, then a Canon.

Are you sorry you asked yet :roll: :roll:
Why would you pick the "N" thing over a Canon. If you are asking this question you probably already have the 420 flash.
