Default KODAK or CANON Digital Cameras?

I currently have a Kodak DCS 520. I have currently seen them on Ebay going for over $2,000. I am interested in buying the new Canon EOS DC60 which is about the same price. Does anyone recommend me keeping the Kodak or Selling it and buying the Canon. Thanks.

The Kodak DCS series is a lot more rugged than the D60 but if it's a choice of image quality -- game over man -- the D60 will blow the DCS520 to toast!

A lot of technology changes since the 520 was built. Just look at (and print) some of my D60 samples - it's an awesome camera for the money.

Indeed. I was at the PPA camera show yesterday and the Canon reps shwoed it to me, it was incredibly lighter than my camera. I was also impressed with the 6.3 megapixel pictures (opposed to the 2 for the 520). This is quite important to me considering I want to take the greatest pictures possible. Thanks alot steve I think I'll go for it.
