Our family has had a Nikon D70 for years that has seen many holidays and produced lots of good photos.
The camera is getting a bit old and unreliable at times, with occasional card issues, and focusing problems where the camera is unable to quickly autofocus and will traverse the whole focus range trying.
I am thinking of getting a new body, in particular a D3300 or D5300.
The lenses we currently have are:
- Nikon 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6G IF-ED AF-S VR DX
- Nikon 18-70mm f/3.5-4.5 IF-ED AF-S VR DX
I believe these lenses are compatible with the aforementioned bodies, but would it be more worthwhile to buy a new lens with the camera, for reasons such as focus speed, compactness, sharpness etc, how much has entry level lens technology improved?
