    Question Extended warranties?

    Hi there! I'm new here. I hope you don't mind me asking this here. Currently I am researching dSLR's and have decided to buy a Nikon. Which one, D70, D70s, or D50 is still undecided. I am leaning towards the D70 at this moment....although it changes every hour or so.

    I was at Best Buy last night checking them out. I thought maybe it would be safer to purchase one at a store along with the extended warranty so that I can take it and have it repaired or whatever in person. But I saw that I can get a much better deal (and without the kit if I want) online. I saw that Norman Camera has the D70, with the kit or without for quite a bit less than Best buy or circuit city AND they offer extended warranties. Did anyone buy an extended warranty for your camera? Best Buy has a deal where you get a new battery replacement every year plus cleaning every 6 months. It was 150 or something like that. I did just read all the negative comments on cust service at Best Buy however.

    Thanks for your help! I've enjoyed reading this forum, and have learned quite a bit so far.

    I bought my D70 from Norman Camera, but without the extended warranty. I did have an exposure circuit problem within warranty, so it was painless, but made me think twice about the extended warranty. For the extra $100 or $150 it might be worth a couple of extra years of coverage, more-so for a fairly expensive camera.

    Just read the warranty carefully to make sure that it covers all manner of defects.
    D7000, D70, CP990, CP900, FE.
    50mm f/1.8, Sigma 18-125, Sigma 24-70 f/2.8, Nikon 18-105 VR, Nikon 55-200 VR, Nikon 43-86 f/3.5 AiS, Vivitar 28-90 F/2.8-3.5 Macro, Vivitar 75-205 F/3.8-4.8, SB800.
    Ha! See, I can change...
