If this is in the wrong category, feel free to move it. That said, Nikon's D70 is set to out-spec the Canon Rebel, AND the 10d, with a feature set that blows the 10d out of the water and a price comparable to the Rebel. A great move by Nikon! D70 $1299 with a GOOD kit lens (the Rebel's is toyish, for sure...) The 18-70 features f3.5/4.5 (faster than the Rebel), AF-S (silent wave motor for fast focusing) and ED glass. Wow. I'm surprised and excited. Might pick one of these puppies up!
