A friend asked me to help him decide on a new dslr body D70, D70s, Or Canon EOS Digital Rebel XT. I Have a D70 and I updated to the 2.0 firmware which makes it a D70s right? Except for some external features? But he is big into getting the new and improved out so I say the D70s. What are your thoughts on this? Is the D70s wirth $130.00 More in price than the D70? Also he has no lenses at all.

I would get the D70s for the little extra to get the new features.

If he wants to get the Body only, I have a mint-condition kit (18-70) lens for sale.

For only a $130 the "s" version may be a better alternative but the differences are really not important. I personally went with a D70 "plain/regular" for my second body, the extra options didn't conivence me to spend more money.

I agree with Joel. If you don't mind throwing away the extra money just for that little 's' then by all means get the latest. If I were buying a D70/s today, I'd get the d70s just because, and not because it's better.

But if money is important, than the only real (read: noticible) difference between the D70 and the D70s is that little 's' that's on the front sticker.

i.e., I usually recommend the D70 for most people, if they can find one.

Whoa!

Your friend should do like most of us did. Go try the Nikon handling vs the drebel. There are some people who (probably a genetic defect, but none-the-less) just prefer the handling of a Canon camera.

The lenses they choose and their skill as a photographer (knowing where to point and when to push) will have MUCH more impact on the pictures they get than will the camera body used.
