    Matched against each other, definately 20D. But, if you have a good selection of nikkors like me, then D70 is a good upgrade. I also hear Nikon is going to dish out some heavy competition to the 20D soon.

    I know...The key is, you must win the lottery or a big poker hand. That way you can buy both systems and a trunk full of lenses. Now if there was only a way to stack the odds in your favor....Better yet, design an 'extension tube' that will allow either mount to connect to it....(patent pending***)

    The EOS 20D is not in the same category as the NIKON D70. This one is better compared with the 300D (Digital Rebel), in wich case the Nikon is a little better.
    So I would go for the 20D, unless you already have some Nikon lenses.

    (In my case you would go for the 20D anyway because I already have a film EOS, with some lenses)

    Can others edit my Photos:

    Yes, the 20D is a step above the D70...but that is why the 20D is more expensive.

    one of the disadvantage of D70 is the viewfinder is small....hard to focus
