    Looking to spend $300-350ish on the body. Mainly been looking at used D70S's on ebay, anything else I should look into/look for? Buy from somewhere else?

    You can lock the thread after this reply...

    D50, D70s
    XTi, 30D

    Canon v. Nikon - it's all about preference especially down here. The cameras are just about equal in every respect. Go play with all of them and see what you prefer.

    I personally can't stand the control layout of the Canon. However doesn't mean that you won't like it.

    I'm gonna start off with either a 50mm or a D70S kit lens because I'm broke. :o I've been wanting a DSLR for like 5 years now and I'm going to get one, I owe it to myself. :big grin:

    You gotta try out before you buy. See how they fit your hands, see how you like the control layouts etc.

    Ignore people trying to make you buy into a certain brand.

    I've been using a Nikon film SLR since I was like 12. I don't have any glass for it anymore since I sold it all, but I'm at least familiar with the controls and I like how Nikon feels in my hands.
