But body to body is what you have to look at.

I got the kit because the only glass I had was for Pentax. The Nikon kit lens was a seperate issue that is where the price jump really comes in.

I looked at body to body first and found the D70 a better fit for me, then looked at the glass. I could have gotten the D70 and a cheap lenes for not much more then the DRebel.

All I'm saying is compare body to body the lenses are a seperate issue. Compare the D70 with the DRebel not the 10D or 20D it is the price point it belongs in.

Well see it's odd.. if you take the lens off the Nikon D70 and just
have a Body only it's like $999 and the Canon 300D is like $887 or
whatever it's at now.. I seen people say they are not in the same
class, and some people say they are.

The D70 is competing with the Drebel people seem to forget that.
The class for the 20D is the D100 why is everyone comparing "apples
and oranges"?
To me it just shows that the DRebel does not match up witk the D70.
If I could afford the D100 I would have compared it against the 10D.

do you think Nikon might lower the price a bit when the 20D comes
out? Or do you think it's fine like it is now?
