So does the kit lens give you blurred background shots at all on the entry level DSLRs or would I definitely have to buy another lens? One of the main reasons to go with a DSLR over the FZ35 would be for shallow dof. I really like the shots where the subject is really sharp and the background blurred so the subject really jumps out. But, I really don't want to get into lots of different lenses and extra costs.
Back to the FZ35 - can I get sports/action shots outdoors that would be decent? I'm not looking for professional shots but I get frustrated now with my p+s being blurry. Sometimes I do get a keeper but it is difficult. My kids are mainly into soccer so that is what I shoot (besides them just running around playing outside).
Thanks for the quick replies.
