Whilst I'm not sure DSLR's are the way to go for an "Auto" shooter- I'll go with you on this and suggest a Canon 550/600D and a Sigma 17-50 f/2.8 lens ( will help in low light ).

You mention extreme weather... have you considered one of the weather sealed DSLRs from Pentax?

the k-30 fits in your budget and offers some really impressive features and weather sealing.

I'll also toss out the Olympus OM-D EM-5 as I love micro four thirds cameras and this is showing itself to be an instant classic.
in my bag: e-m1, 7-14mm pro, 14-54mm mk ii, 50-200mm mk i, 70-300mm
in my pocket: e-pm2 lumix 12-32
