I don't know how you define 'build', but I use a D70 and the thing is built 
like a Rolex watch. My friends tell me that they've dropped D70's on floors 
rocky roads without any damage. Re the M digital in 35mm format, I think it 
will be inevitable. And I don't think it will go for much more than the M7. 
problem is to keep the M digital the same size as the M7. Where do they put 
that large battery?
