Take anything written by Ken Rockwell with a grain of salt. He is notorious for only liking what he uses, everything else is garbage.

For example, the D70 produces images as nice as the 20D, only smaller and more noisy, not that the images are bad, just not as clean as the 20D (or the rebel xt). The flash synch is higher, but I've not experienced an issue with 1/250th vs 1/500th and my flash has highspeed sych (although at a greatly reduced output).

Are we talking about This Rebel Xt? I sure am glad you mentioned it, because the spec look impressive. I take it you would recomend this over the D70? It has a much cheaper price too.

Yeah, that's the camera....but I wouldn't buy from them.

I'm a canon man so I would go with the rebel between it and the D70, but that's not to say that if I weren't already invested in canon lenses that I would. The d70 is a good camera.

Well the only lenses I have are the one's for my minolta film camera. I always though you were a D70 man. Maybe I will start researching the lenses. I.e differance between the canon, and the nikor lenses. have you heard of tameron or tamerak lenses, however it's spelled, worth investing in?

I own the tamron 28-75 f/2.8 and the tamron 90mm f/2.8 macro and I'm considering buying the tamron 17-50 f/2.8, three great lenses. Tamron, Tokina, Sigma all are like canon and nikon, some great lenses, some garbage lenses. You have to research each individually.

To be honest, you can get stunning images with any of todays dslrs, buy based on price and what feels best in your hand.
