I hope this finally puts to rest the idea that more megapixels = a better
camera. Nice comparison. Thanks for the site.

Well, there you have it. I'm buying a D70 now.

Not.

I'm not sure this review puts to bed anything. The Nikon/Canon zealots will
read what they want out of it and come up with different conclusions.

I for one have both a D70 and 20D. They are far superior cameras to the
original Digital Rebel, and from what I can see, the D70 is still superior
to the 350D DRXT. Oh,well, to each her own.

I went from the 10d to the 20d and the big difference I noticed was a much
better contrast in the 8mp camera. Not sure if it translates the same w the
300 and 350.

However the kit lens on the 70D seems to blow away the Canon version. Had I
not already had Canon lenses a couple years ago I may have gone Nikon. For
me the whole Nikon vs Canon thing is like eating a steak with a sterling
silver vs a silver-plated one....it's the steak (ie the image) that counts.

Reading the first page the feature set has the slight edge for nikon in
terms of shear number of advantages over the other. Whether these features
are individually or as a whole enough to sway one over the other is down to
personal preference. Overall you would have to be hard pushed to use either
of these cameras to their very limit.

Canon is no slouch when it comes to lenses. Do you think the inferior
(according to some) lens is to save money and bring the price of the camera
down? Or, does Nikon just have the edge in this genre of lens? After all,
when you buy a "kit," the lens is often as important or more important than
the camera, and will make a huge difference when comparing images. A crappy
lens on a 16 megapixel camera won't compare favorably to a great lens on a 5
megapixel camera, even if you blow up the prints.
