i guess i should have phrased that differently.. there are reasons why both the D70 and the Rebel Xt can be considered superior cameras.. so different ppl could make arguments both ways.. so remember i am biased since i do shoot canon, though i do try to be as objective as possible..

i, myself, would buy the rebel xt even if i were starting over with no lense.. the reasons mostly have to do with image quality... while many ppl will argue that going from 6 - 8 megapixels is negligeable, there are times when having those extra pixels is nice.. particularly if you are shooting in the RAW format and are doing alot of cropping and then enlarging.. i have used every ounce of pixels of my 20d before doing some large group pictures that needed some cropping and enlarging, for example.. also, the rebel xt has lower noise at higher ISO ratings, which makes it a little better for low light conditions.. i have heard a few reviews that showits not quite as noise resistant as the 20d, but is still better than the nikon offerings..

but when its all said and done, you really cannot go wrong either way.. so if you really do prefer the feel of the nikon, by all means get it.. its a wonderful camera as well.. and everything i have said about memory cards and flashes still apply to it.. though i can't talk as much about the lenses..

wow, its really tough to give advice and not let my canon bias creep in.... :-)

But that's great because you obviously love the Canon system. If you were COMPLETELY objective and didn't care one way or the other then how could I believe that the camera you spent your hard earned cash on was AWESOME??

You've given me great advice and I cannot wait for my new Rebel XT (black body) to arrive! =)
