    Yes, I expect the typical sackriding bullshit arguments.


    Most of my shooting is automotive action or still, a lot in lower light situations, but I dont want to limit myself to just one area. Was at the Rolex 24 and EVERYONE was shooting canon, with the exception of 2 guys that I saw
    I've read some reviews about the 20D being very good in low light at higher ISO's than the D70.

    Also worried about the banding issue with the 20D

    pros? Cons?
    anyone have either camera that can post up some pics you've taken? Seen some from a D70 but none from a 20D yet.

    They aren't even in the same class.

    If I could afford the 20D, I would have purchased it over the D70. But with the D70 w/kit lens at $903 after rebate, I had to go for it.

    What makes the D70's metering better than the 20D's? I don't know too much about Nikon's lineup.

    Hmmm. . . 1100 w/ 200 in rebates. . . OOORRRrrrrr 1500 and no rebates. . . Justin, these cameras aren't even in the same class. That's like comparing a Hyundai to a Subar. . . hmm. . .

    It all depends on what you like.

    I purchased the 300d because I was looking at point and shoot cameras and 800 bucks versus 600 wasnt that much of aj ump for a huge increase in function.

    and what do you know, I'm taking pictures all the time again now. (like I used to with B&W)

    Oh and the reason no one has really given a legit answer is because there is no wrong answer. They are both great cams. D70 and 20d are closer to compare than the 300d.
