Exactly the same would apply to the Nikon D70, which has the advantage
of being cheaper. Don't forget with these cameras you will need to add
the cost of a CF card too, a 1Gb would be useful with either. Both of
them are more to carry around than a Coolpix etc, but can give better
results. Some things - like close-ups - will need extras with the D70 or
the 20D though.

Photoshop isn't free, so unless you already own a copy would add
considerably to your costs. Adobe Elements 3 gets you the same raw
converter rather more cheaply.
