How do the new Nikon AF-S VR lenses compare to Canon?  I'm not familiar 
with Canon but I do own a Nikon D70 that works very well for me as a 
high end "pro-sumer camera."  I'm pleased with the images and quite 
frankly, I could care less if the new Nikon lenses fit the old bodies.  
I also had a Canon FD setup for awhile...
