I would like to get a dSLR; have narrowed the choice down to 2, the Nikon D70 and the Canon 20D; looked at various reviews and comparisons; can someone please explain /justify the $600 additonal cost of the 20D; what does the 20D have over the D70 that justifies the extra money?


No flaming please; I have posted this on both the Canon and Nikon SLR forums


Thanx

Well, I don't know what "nikonians" have to say about that but in the Canon talk you will receive this mostly: 300D vs. D70 is more appropriate, 20D is a bit "higher".
But, if you want to spend money in the D70 range, consider a 10D (not 300D - DRebel).

Well... The obvious things are that it's faster, has higher resolution, and appears tohave lower noise, too. Others can probably point out more differences. As to whether or not you want to spendmore for this modelis up to you. You may prefer some of the Nikon features, and may not need the higher resolution and faster frame rate of the 20D.

The 20D has the following advantages:
1. It uses Canon lenses
2. Almost instant on
3. Faster shooting 5FS
4. 9 autofocus points
5. Great color
6. 8mp
7. handles noise better
