I have a Nikon Coolpix 885 and I want to upgrade to a higher end digital Nikon. I have been looking at the Nikon D70 as well as the Nikon 8400,8700, and the 8800. I do not want to have to spend and arm and a leg to upgrade. Can anyone out there shed some light on which of these models of digital Nikons may suit my needs.
I want a camera that I can have control over the operation of it from focus through shutter speed selection and apature selection as well. I like the idea of one that you can interchange lenses with like the D70 but can I get similar results with a fixed lens like on the 8000 series that Nikon has to offer.
I am open to any and all suggestions.

I was in your boat bout a year ago... I was looking to upgrade a nikon coolpix 8800..
First off I would make the suggestion to move into a Digital SLR... especially if you want that kind of control over your shots...
Secondly, I would look at Canon and Nikon... I would stick with Nikon if you have any lenses currently with Nikon but if not look hard at Canon.. I made the jump and am pleased with it...
Let me know how it turns out...
