Canon 20D/Nikon D70???

I am in the market for a digital SLR camera.I have done a lot of research on them, and narrowed it down to 2 cameras. Nikon D70 and Canon 20D.They both seem to have their quirks, and I am at a loss as to which one to choose.(I do have a nikon SLR camera inwhich my old lenses will work with the nikon,thus reducing the cost quite a bit.)But that aside , If some one can convince me that the canon is a (much)better camera I am leaning towards the Nikon. Money aside. Which camera would you rather have????????
Thank you for taking your time in responding.

Canon 20D/Nikon D70

I would wait until the end of February to make a decision.

The big camera show in Florida starts in a few days.
There are rumors that Nikon is planning to introduce a new DSLR camera.

There are also rumors that Canon is planning to introduce the 350D (a different version of the Digital Rebel 300D).

The D70 is known as the Rebel killer since it can outperform

the Canon Rebel. I don't, however, think that it is up the the job of competing with the 20D. The 20D is more powerful in a number of respects. That is why folks expect Nikon to announce a new camera soon. However, if you already have Nikon lenses, you should probably stick with Nikon.
