There isn't a 'best' one. The Nikon D70 users love their camera. The Canon
owners love their cameras. I deduce that they are all great cameras.

The DSLR body is just a start, its the lenses that add up, sometimes costing
more than the camera body.

I don't have a lot of information to offer you. I will suggest that for
the most part not many people have much experience with more than one such
camera. Many people have experience with just one however.

There are a number of web sites that offer comparison of such cameras
and if you have not already done so, I suggest you take a look at what they
have to offer.

Last year the D70 won more best DSLR awards than the Canons did, but
that probably doesn't mean much.

Presuming you don't have either system's lens or accessories yet,
here's my suggestion for deciding which camp to belong to:

If you use (or like the look of, want to get one etc,) Apple Macintosh
then buy a Canon. Linux and PC users should go for Nikon. If you have
no preference on OS, Canon is right for you.

I'm not suggesting anything about compatibility here, it's simply
about the type of person you are.

Here's another way to decide (and I'll bet you'll come to the same
answer):

If you like wearing black, or other dark solid colors or like clothes
with high neck-lines you are a Canon man. If hawaiian shirts, exposed
hairy chest etc is more your thing, then Nikon.

And finally:

Champagne or Wine drinker = Canon, Beer drinker = Nikon.
Anything with alcohol = Nikon.

I guess I've annoyed enough people now.

As you're unnervingly spot on on all other counts, I'd better rush out and
buy some Hawaiian shirts and a fake chest-hair wig before using my D70 to
take a self-portrait :)

If they do, then they are certain to hold the camera correctly.

Everyone is a nobody to someone. (Is that a song I hear?)

Of course if you use Nik-on, Can-on, Minolt-on, Fuj-on, Pent-on, you are
a multiple nobody.

My opinion:
Used Canon 10D...or new Nikon D70...or new Canon Digital Rebel.

Ignoring used vs. new, the 10D wins in that bunch.
Followed by the D70, and then the Digital Rebel.
