i havent used a D70. But i used the rebel for school. It was ok. My dad has a d100 and a d2H and i them a whole lot more then cannon, but then agian my friend has a 2 different versions of the rebel (im not to familiar with cannon) and he likes them. Cannon and Nixon are both the top of the line so both are good choices, i would go with nixon though just because i am more familiar with them
do you have any kind of SLR already? if you have one, then get the smae company so you can interchange things such as lenes. i have a canon k2. so may i get my DSLR, im the canon 20D, i was going to get the rebal, but when the 20D came out, you get a lot more bang for your buck, and because i wanna major in photo, im getting the 20D. if i were you either get the 20D or the rebal XT, but if you will to pay more or your parents are, get the 20D
