After saving my pennies and agonising over which camera to purchaseI dove in and bought the alpha 700. I thinkI read every review possible about the different cameras, 40D, D300, pentax k20d etc. to the extent that it drove me and (mostly my patient wife crazy.) I was wondering when the Nikon D90 or 50D would arrivebut you can't wait forever.
Things I've learnt from my readings, lenses are impotant, (I'm starting from scratch, this is my first digital SLR so I dont have a bank of lenses) and no matter what thecamera is,it's the operator that counts.

What I really like about the alpha, easy menu system, easy to read screen-nice big numbers etc. lots of buttons but all are appropriately dedicated to most common functions. Also my budget bought an extra battery, bag and 4gb extreme lll memory card.
(Nikon D300 nice but way out of my budget)

Here are a few of my first attempts.
