Does anyone know a source for a lens adaper that will allow me to use a Minolta AF lens on a Nikon D70 body?

I don't recall seeing a Minolta to F mount adapter. Unless you have some very expensive Minolta lenses, don't bother.

then what you want is the 7D. Certainly it is more money than a D50 or D70, but you will be able to use all your current models, and not replace any glass... which will save you a lot more than the difference between the nikon and the 7D. Easy Peasy :)

In that case I agree 100% with Warin. A no-brainer...Get the 7D. The extra $400-$500 will definately be worth-it. Having image stabilization built-in is a super bonus in this case.
