Nikon D50 bodies are out now.. about $750. they take the SD cards from point-and-shoots. The D70 sans lens is now about $800-ish. It uses CF cards, which are more widely used for DSLR's. Good values there. the Canon 20D is awesome ,too, but it will go at about $1300 w/rebate. The Canon D-rebels are a personal issue. I think they feel more flimsy than the D70.
