    Great reviews.

    I can't wait to get my Tamron lens in the mail.

    Yea your D70 shots are per say: sweet. I wanna that lens coupled with the XT. Decisions Decisions ...

    I'm not sure of the thought process here, but why would you buy an XT if you are not going to use Canon lenses? The D70 is as good, or better than the XT. MegaPixels does not a dSLR make...

    sorry george I have to take another exception with you, we have not seen a single full noise comparison, yes I know about noise ninja but I do not like to add yet another app to my already full post processing workflow.

    of course I do want to Echo what you say about megapixel... don't buy into the hype..... I have seen a d2h and canon 1d produce blowups that put the 6megapixel D70 and dreb to shame. (the d2h and 1D are both 4 megapixel cams).

    more to the point why buy a Nikon if you aren't going to use nikor lenses? it can be the same thing... personally I do not like the plastic feel of either the canon dreb/Xt or the nikon D70. I currently still see a better path in the canon line of cameras for this year if you are planning on upgrading in the next 12-18 months. if you will only use this camera than the nikon is a great camera however I think the 1dm2 and the 1dsm2 are better than the nikon counterparts (the d2x).


    of course this is only my opinion so please go out and try as many cameras as you can before buying that is your best bet... BTW the one feature the D70 has that none of the lower end canons have (includeing the D20) is spot metering which for many compisitions is very nice.. I use a seksonic 508 for this myself but not many people want to cary around an extra metoring device or they are not proaoctical for there type of shooting.

    Sorry George as my typing and proof reading before posting isn't always the best. I meant to have said: "I wanna see that lens coupled with the XT." As in end results photo wise. I do understand the MP comparison.

    Thanks

    Ah... me too. The XT has to be better than what I've seen so far.

    I will be happy to oblige soon.
    I will see if my friend will let me borrow her 70-200 f/4L so I can do some tests similar to this with my 350D. I will also use my 50mm f1.8, kit lens, and the canon 75-300 just to compare to the 70-200 with.

    Jamison55, thanks for spending the time to take the pics and then make a webpage for them too! Your efforts help out many people.

    I am saving up for the sigma 70-200 2.8 and will also do some tests to compare my friends canon 70-200 f/4L at f/4 and smaller.

    and I will also do some 100% crops at all the available ISO's for people who have concerns about noise.

    I was set to buy the Sigma 70-200 next, but I just picked up a Canon 80-200 2.8L for around the same price. I'll post some pics from it as soon as it arrives. Incidently, for those who are looking for a great place to buy used gear, I have found the Fred Miranda Buy and Sell forum to be quite the candy store...

    Thanks Jamison55

    Great comparison. That Tamron you have is incredibly sharp wide open. I was wondering which of the two had the more true (Sigma versus kit) color in the beginning examples then the Tamron backed up the color rendition of the Sigma as did the 50mm.

    I think both the Tamron and Sigma are a little warm, but I tend to like a slightly warmer tone in the subjects I shoot...
