    They're going to have to price it super low to beat the 350D. I'm kind of guessing the D70 won't get a price drop and both the D50 and D70S will be slightly lower. Sort of the same thing they did with the D100 when the D70 came out.

    :hsugh: it will be down there

    Nikon is looking to have three cameras under its main professional series, the D2Hs and D2X cameras.

    Right now there is the D70 and D100.

    The D70 is still fairly new and is getting a few extra features, the price on the D70 is already moving down and when inventory of D70 cameras is gone the D70s will be all that's left for this model. The D70 and D70s will not be sold by Nikon USA at the same time -- You might find them in stores, etc, but the D70s is an update and replacement for the D70 model.

    The D70s will probably take the D70 model's current price point when it arrives. The 18-70mm AF-S kit lens is very good.

    The D100 will probably get a replacement above the D70's price point, closer to the $1500 mark.

    The D50 is on the lower third of the pricing structure -- They wanted to make it significantly cheaper than the D70/D70s -- $500-$600 is likely to be that point.

    It's main competition in price is the Canon 300D Digital Rebel model, which I believe Canon will continue selling, and that's in the range of $500-$600.

    :o

    Ah, I see. The price sounds nice, but it looks rather ugly. :hsd:

    Actually what I think Nikon will do is release the d50 as the direct competitor to the XT.. and perhaps the upgrade to the d70 as the replacement for the d100. Seems more likely than having three different cameras with very little difference in price.

    Hmm. . . Interested to see what the D70S has to offer over the D70. Either way, I don't see myself wanting anything more than the D70 anytime soon. Just give me a battery grip for it and that's all I want. Goddamn.

    the d50 will be slightly bigger than the N75 but smaller than the d70/d70s. both will have 2" LCD's and different batteries

    On paper the Rebel XT is a good camera. Specs are deceiving. :mamoru:
