I have been reading this forum for sometime and have decided to get a DSLR camera. I have a budget between $5-6K trying to decide between the Canon EOS20D and the Nikon D70s.
The more recommendations I get to read, the more difficult the decision becomes. I am hoping to join the right camp from the start considering the large investments that I am going to put into the lens later. Specs wise, I like the Nikkor lens but prefer the Canon body. How nice it would be to be able to use Nikkor lens on the 20D. Just my wishful thinking to have the best of both world. Not to meant that Canon does not produce good lens (I know about the L Lens) but just my personal preference for Nikkor lens.
I am really lost for choice. For information, I travel alot and loves taking scenery pictures of landscapes and buildings. I prefer wide lens to cover as much ground as possible. I would also prefer fast lens to mimise the startling effect via the use of flash.
I believe that some experts in this forum has also faced this problem before. It would help me if you can relate your experience for your decision. I do not mean for this thread to end up in flames. Hope to hear some of your good personal experiences if you too were at the similiar cross road as I do now.
