    I'll stick wif canon. Much better sensor, better ISO rating, less digital noise.

    what canon? You cant beat what you get for the price you pay. a grand for the body is a steal IMO. Show me a canon thats got the same features if not better for the same price if not better.

    My 300D. Hands down. Lower cost, same sensor as the high end Canon DSLRs, much better ISO rating (the d70 won't even do ISO 100!). I give up some on the burst mode framerate, but I'll take that tradeoff. Also, I just like canon glass more than nikon.

    The D70 does ISO from 200 to 1600.

    Ill check out the canon though. Im looking at other options.

    I also love how once you turn the D70 on, there is no delay, its instantly on.

    That is cool. I'm a bit skeptical of 'instant' though. My 300D boots in about a second and a half. From some of the comparisons I've read, the d70 at ISO 200 is about the same as the canon at ISO 150 or 175.

    Why are you skeptical of the instant power? You can get the 300d with a lense a heck of a lot cheaper than the D70. Ill have to find a 300D to shoot.

    Is the view finder a lcd screen or you look through the lense?
