I am not sure that the Sony, as much as I like it, has the required lenses.

Well, of course, javacleve-

The choice is entirely up to you. You asked, and we attempted to give you the needed answers. Thanks for giving it a good try.

Hello again, javacleve-

Yes, the Canon XSi arrived this morning (10/20) right on schedule. It looks to be light, fast, and quite handy. I will have to get my head into the documentation to give...

If you are referring to the HDR feature of the Sony A-500, it does work via the Exposure Compensation feature, it is a separate feature that takes the clipped highlights out of photo...

TCav-

But based on the www.dpreview.com (http://www.dpreview.com) review of the Canon 500D/T-1. That review, essentially says, forget about anything over ISO 3200. With that 15mp imager used on...

That is an excellent analysis, TCav-

Good Morning, littlejohn-

I agree with you. The Olympus E-620 is a great DSLR camera. However, it does have some limitations. One is the ability to lock focus in some low light photo environments....

TCav-

A tip of the hat to you, sir. You have it figured out. After a bit of research last night, it was obvious! There is not enough "fast glass" available to support the Pentax KX. On the Olympus...

I would not be depressed about your possible camera choices. We have yet to see results from the new Pentax KX, but samples I have seen in other Forums look very positive. The KX...

The Nikon D-5000 has the same high ISO capabilities of the D-90, but because there is no focusing motor built into the camera body, it can only use Nikon's AF-S category lenses.

It is a matter of using the right too for the job. The laws of physics are unbending.

javacleve-

As JohnG has stated, high ISO shooting is an acquired skill. At the least, I take 4 to 5X more photos than I save at ISO 3200. So the real "keepers" probably represent 20% or less of...

When I last looked the Olympus E-620 body at www.amazon.com was $599.00. However the lenses cost less than the comparable Canon Lenses.

However, wait a minute, i thought the deciding...

javacleve-

The Canon kit lens, the 18-55mmIS lens at its widest aperture is only F 3.5. Hence, you can see how the 50mm F 1.8 prime becomes very useful.

All three of the recommended lenses are...

Just for clarity sake, the Canon Kit lens is now the 18-55mmIS. That is a zoom lit lens, quite typical. The Nifty-Fifty is the Canon 50mm F1.8 lens. It is a separate lens and not that...

With most folks, a cost effective combination for starters, is the kit lens, and the Canon 18-55IS. The kit lens is a good lens, a "nifty fifty" (a Canon 50mm F 1.8 lens) which is...

No, javacleve-

We are sorry you took it that way and we offer our apologies. However, please scream particularly loudly when you find your perfect camera, as we are all searching for that camera.
