    Cool! I'm looking at DSLRs right now - I want a Nikon D2h, but will probably have to settle for a D100 or even a D70. Canon did a wonderful thing when they released the 300D - they're forcing prices down!

    Yup, a wonderful action from them!

    I considered the D70, but since it will be more expensive and won´t be out until march-april and doesn´t have THAT much more features, I just decided to get the 300D. It has everything to keep me happy! :)

    Did you already have Canon lenses? I have a boatload of MF AI and AI-S Nikkors, so the D2h makes a lot of sense to me. I could be very happy with my existing (beloved) manual focus lenses on a killer digital body!

    Sure, it's a $3K body (and that will fall quickly, once the new Canon 1D MkII hits the street), but I wouldn't have to spend at least $1000 up front on lenses to get operational. Then, I could buy AF glass on an as needed basis.

    Have fun with the new toy, and be sure to post some pics!

    Nah, I´m just starting in the dslr world. I got the kit lens (18-55mm) and now next project is to buy a larger zoom lense and the 420ex speedlite flash.
