Well heres the thing:The SLR I was looking at was the Canon 20D which is an awesome camera. I don't like the feel of the Eos 300d, the entry level slr plus that ones about $900.The cheapest your gonna find the 20D is $1400 with one lens. I've been drooling over that camera since Thanksgiving. I simply can't afford it. I'm a Canon Guy, have been since the early eighties. I just picked up the Canon Powershot pro1 for $535 on E-bay, thats a price I can live with it does everything that I want it to and its 8mp with a 28-200 lens. I can put up with a little "noise" in the 8mp setting, most of my pictures wont be in that high res anyway. Bang for the buck was what I was after. I'll let you know what I think of it when I get it.

Just posted some pictures taken w/the D70 w/various lenses.
