    Default Nikon D70 vs Canon EOS300D

    Hi all,

    new here, so please pardon me if this is boring stuff to you guys... I'm currently looking for a camera and am keen to secure either a Nikon D40/50/60/70 or Canon EOS300D.

    Reason being: They are priced around $600-700ish which is around my budget of $500 and I somehow got better confidence with these cameras.

    However, I seem to see lots of D70s for sale instead of 300Ds, izit because more people keep the 300Ds as its a better camera? or becoz that the D70 is really such a good camera there are lots of people buying and selling them?

    Also, is there a difference between D70 and D70S?

    Thanks in advance!

    I say skip dSLR with that budget... 600-700 is mostly for body only.. you still need a lens to shoot.
    else 300d or d50 with kit lens... the others are above $700 with kit lens nornamlly

    You should be able to find D70 + 18-70mm kit lens at around 700+. This kit lens has good optics and will last you for quite a while. While using it, assess your need and get other lens if you really need

    Why focus on discontinued cameras (with an already high shutter count) when you can pick up a new Pentax K110 D kit from eBay for less than $800.

    Opps! thanks everyone...

    Just realised that it means that most of the DSLR on sale only body? and no basic lens that comes with the package when bought new??

    Seems like I have to re-plan my budget...

    Besides the shutter count and lens, are there any other stuffs I need to take note of?

    Thanks in advance!

    If it's with the kit lens, the seller will state in the thread.

    When u buy a new set, u can buy with kit lens or buy body only.
