    Did Nikon raise the price by about $250 over the old
    D70? If so, was this so they wouldn't have to make
    the price of the new D50 too low?
    Reason I ask is the Rebel XT is available in Canada
    for around $1299 Can. ($1050 U.S.) but the Nikon is
    $1599 Can. or $1300.00 U.S. I thought the old D70 and
    new Rebel were priced the same?

    Is that price for the body only, or the body and the 18-70mm DX lens too?

    The D70s Outfit will be available for an estimated street price of
    $1199.95, while the D70s Set (body only) will be available for an
    estimated street price of $899.95*. The camera will ship in early May 2005.

    The Nikon D50 outfit, including the new AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor 18-55mm
    f/3.5-5.6G ED lens, will be available in June for an estimated selling
    price of $899.95*.

    Ok. So I guess the D50 is the competetion to the Rebel XT and the
    D70 is considered somewhat higher on the food chain.

    These prices are from Simon's Cameras (Montreal) web site:
    Rebel XT body only - $1149.95
    D70s body only - $1129.95

    Looking at the kit price is misleading, since the Nikon's kit lens is *much*
