dSLRs

First off, the search is down so I can't use it :(

I am thinking about picking up a dSLR. Wanting to spend $1000 or less.

We have a Nikon 20/20 and a couple of lenses for it so being able to switch them out would be great but not required.

Anybody have any suggestions as to what is good, great, or to be avoided?

I'm not trying to start a Flame war or anything of that Nature. (I like Nikon - because that's the lens set that I have. - Canon makes a product that is equally as good.)

I don't think you can go wrong with ANY of the canon or Nikon DSLRs out there - the easy choice though - if you have Nikon Lenses, and IF they will work - Go Nikon. I think the D50, D70, and possibly the D100 are all at or below $1k.

I've just upgraded to a D2x and have a D100 and D2h. All of them have been excellent cameras. (although I have to get rid of something as I only have two hands, how can I justify three cameras.)

i have a d70 and let me tell you, it is awesome. canon makes a good one in the new 350, but if you already have some nikon stuff, the choice is obvious.

Rental

Go to a local rent house and try them, Just like your guns.
I was all about the nikons but I tried the canon as well and found it to be more in tune with my style of shooting. Still love the nikons though.

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.
