    Bro, both are good cameras. Which you choose depends on what you want in a camera.

    Canon 350D
    comes with 18 - 55mm lens
    consdered an entry-level model
    small and light weight
    Has 8 mpix

    Nikon D70s
    comes with 18 - 70mm lens
    consdered a semi pro level camera
    Bigger and heavier so feels more solid
    Has 6 Mpix

    I prefer to choose the system instead of the camera.

    If choosing camera, then need to consider Fuji, Pentax, Olympus, Sigma also.

    i have the d70s, it is a fantastic camera i love it, however canon seem to be ahead of the technological game, so prehaps go with canon if u want all the new gear, and nikon if you want a really well built strong user friendly camera, produces excellent images.

    just my opinion

    gd luck!

    Olympus E500 and Konica Minolta D5D are 2 other choices to consider in the same category.

    Depth of Field preview is present on both systems.

    Nikon well proven to last(D100), more stable camera mount. Canon changes more rapidly.(300D), upgrade choices are more diffcult to make and expensive to change(EF-S mount, 1.6x; 1.3x; 1x FOV).

    Yes, if you are starting a new system, i do recomend Olympus E-500.
    The body is cheaper, but the lenses and stuff are abit more expansive compared. Even so, what you get are quality optics.

    Then close your eyes and pick one. Unless you have a preference of one system over the other (in which case you won't be asking anyway) it won't make a difference

    If you're expecting clear cut A's better than B comments you're not gonna find it.

    i just brought my D70s kit, and i wasn't comparing with a 350D..
    i was comparing D70s to 20D.

    and decided D70s!

    oh forgot to mention that... the 350D body is really small... more suitable for sissy... but good for travelling!

    and the shutter sound of the 350D pricks my ear... it's rather high pitch compare to D70s or 20D maybe i'm jus over sensitive.. LOL

    350D once utilized correctly can produce images to match any camera. Lenswise, buy only what you need to shoot. a good start might be the 28-135, kit lens shouldnt be that bad either.

    There should be some freelancers who use 350D for their work.

    Bro, if you want a handy camera that can produce excellent images, and you're more of a hobbyist than a professional, a good choice is the 350D.
    But if you shoot for a price, then it must be the D70s. Because if you are seen with a 350D amongst the pros, horrible as it may sound, people will be laughing behind your back, for using an 'baby' camera.
    Thus is the world. The Canon has higher resolution, and is in no way lesses than the D70s. And it is more advance in terms of functions and technology you may say. But there are things made to cater for fun and things made to cater for work. You know what I mean.
    So bottom line, if for fun 350D. If for work D70s. That's how I would decide.
    I was going thru the same dilema, but decided on the D70s for the same reason.
