I'm debating the D50 versus the D70s, but I'm a bit worried that buying the D70s is spending $1200 for a body and kit lens that won't be around very long since the Canon Rebel XT has 8 mega pixels, and Nikon will need a competitive model. Would those of you who follow the rumors and the early releases of product model information give me your advice on this. It is a serious purchase for me, and I will use it for hobby shooting not income generation. I know that digital models change about once a year, but it seems like the D70s may be a model that buys Nikon a little more time before it introduces a similarly priced 8 mega-pixel model. Also, I'm wondering if they won't change to SD memory for their next model like they did with the D50. Thanks for your views in advance.
