I'm thinking about the purchase of my first DSLR and have been checking out some of the ones that are in my budget. One thing I have found useful is before I go to check out a camera I download the owner's manual and get a good basic understanding of how the camera works.

There are nice budget priced DSLR's out there that can take very nice shots.

This one is on my short list.

That's a very clever idea

Been thinking about a DSLR myself, again, lol.
Since i have the macro lens and the 200mm for the 38 would they go onto a panasonic DSLR or would i have to start buying different lenses again?
There are so many on the market now that it is so very easy to get confused when you are still new but i too just like photographing what takes my eye, same with my artwork to be honest, never could stick to one subject.
Saly those interior shots of the mission are excellent.

Well after lots of thinking , looking etc etc I've decided to stick with what i have for the moment and try to experiment more to improve my technique .
I'm thinking i can still do more with the camera i have without spending more .
So thanks for all the advice people
