Interesting link. I hope to see the D70 focusing screen soon - might be something I could use. I have an MF lense I like, and last week when shooting a desert scene with sand I had severe focusing problems with an AF lens. In general, I'd prefer using MF even on AF lenses in many situations, but the D70 viewfinder design doesn't really help.
Heiko. I too agree. I stuggle with this tiny viewfinder on D70 and would prefer to use manual focus but I find it hard to tell if I am in focus. When in manual, I kind of rely on the little focus light. Seems to work most of the time.
