I was comparing the specifications of the cameras and nothing really seemed very different. Anyone want to explain what the differences are?

The D70 and D70s are a little higher performance, and have a better user interface. The D50 is basically a slightly smaller detuned version of the D70. Only the D50 has added USB2.0HS(?). The D70s has a 2" LCD.

So nothing real dramatic, mainly an update for the D70 (which was already a very good camera) and a lower cost entry level dSLR in the D50 to compete with the 300D (and maybe even the XT).

for some reason i am very attracted to these two new offerings. they seem more solid in pictures than the Canon duo.

FYI, the D50 also has a 2.0" LCD. They also have the same interface, unless you mean the actual camera controls. The D50 would be great if it were announced alone, but they should really have upped the ante with the D70 because I honestly see very little difference between the two.

Now I hate making generalizations, but I'd give the nod to Canon for the raw picture quality, but Nikon obviously wins when it comes to build quality and controls.
