I believe it varies from person to person whether you should upgrade, or not. I bought my D70 a few weeks ago, and have not seen any problems with it; no moire, no backfocus, and no other strange happenings. I'm pleased with how it's performing now - I desire no upgrade. The things below are what the firmware upgrade fixes, and since I have had no issues with it, I choose to leave it be.

Images captured in Continuous mode at high shutter speeds sometimes displayed vignetting in upper portions of the image. This problem has been corrected.

When the built-in Speedlight was in its raised position but did not fire, the Automatic Sensitivity Adjustment function (ISO Auto: CSM 5) sometimes failed. This problem has been corrected.

The camera now supports CompactFlash™ memory cards with a capacity greater than 4GB.

When images were captured in Continuous mode at an Image size setting of M and an Image quality setting of FINE, the memory card access lamp sometimes glowed continuously and the camera could not be turned off with the power switch. This problem has been corrected.

Text errors in display of Chinese menus and messages have been corrected.
