Hi All.

I want to buy digital SLR camera.

Which one should I get the Canon 350D or the Nikon D70s?

Either one...they're both great choices. Do you like one company better than the other? If not, flip a coin. Good luck!

In my opinion, dollar for dollar, it is very hard indeed to ignore the Pentax 1stDS. How do I know? Because I own and actively use a Canon 350D/XT, a Canon 20D, a Nikon D-70, and the Pentax 1stDS.

I can use any one of those 4 dSLR cameras, and when I leave for a 21 day trip to Russia on 06/27, to conduct Digital Camera Workshops, I will be taking the Pentax with me and leaving the other three at home. Why you might ask? Because you cannot beat the size, the grip and the viewfinder on the Pentax 1stDS.

Believe it is worth taking a look at, Steve has done a very nice review on it. In addition, here is a sample no flash photo taken just 3 weeks ago in Shanghai at ISO 3200 some 100feet away from the stage with the Pentax 1stDS.
