Did some prints from the D70 recently, and with the size of the picture saved from the D70 at full resolution, you're just about able to do a 8x12" picture at exactly 250dpi. At least that's the requirement from my neighbourhood photo developer . The output is not too bad, but I have a shot that looked a little soft but that's probably because of the kit lens on the D70 at 18mm. The second shot was crisp and taken with the Nikkor 80-200mm f2.8. One day I'll try and blow it up or do crops, and see if a picture developped with less than 250dpi will have quality compromises.
