    Re: Digital SLR Camera options

    get a d80 and a nice nikon 50mm (cheap) cracking lens, great for portratis and makes great backgorund blur etc.

    also the nikon 18-200 lens is very good!

    but watch out for DUST on the sensor.......once this problem has been cracked i will invest in a dslr again.

    this is a good site with the latest cheap prices

    Currys are selling the Olympus D410 with case and 40-150mm lens for £349 and you can get £50 cashback - I've checked, and it seems to get decent reviews so I've ordered one as a backup camera - can't be beaten at that price... http://www.currys.co.uk/martprd/product/seo/171729
    Would leave you with enough spare wonga for a lens or two...

    @tom: There is an EF-S 10mm-22mm lens which should give a nice wide view and has a nice overlap with the 18mm-55mm standard EF-S lens.

    I don't really know anything about cameras but I once found this site which had very good prices. Was the cheapest place I could find a Canon S3 at the time I was looking.

    As an ex-photographer there's only one choice - Nikon. I have a D200 and it is an excellent piece of kit. Expensive but worth every penny.

    Re: Digital SLR Camera options

    Just an update on the Olympus e-410. It has arrived from Currys with the stock 17.5-45mm lens and an additional 40-150mm lens and also a camera bag - battery is charging now so will post how it performs later - but at £349 less a £50 cashback that Olympus are offering it has to be the best bargain in DSLR's around at the moment... whilst I do agree that the Nikon's are the ones to have, this is a great backup/entry level camera and gets decent reviews... still in stock for reserve and collect but not surprisingly, out of stock for home delivery now...
