Thanks, Bob-

Where are you in the decision making process on the DSLR. It sounds like it will either be the Nikon D-40 or the Sony A-200. I am also glad that DSLR prices are good in the UK.

Happy Holidays!

I ordered the Sony A200 a short while ago. I sat and thought about it, and it ticks more boxes for me, than the other cameras did. Mainly a lot of the points I mentioned earlier, and I think it will suit the style of photography I want to experiment with.

I will have to buy the Minolta 50mm lens that's been mentioned I think. I've also ordered a 4GB CF card, and a UV filter to protect the lens

Congratulations Bob, when will it arrive? Who did you order from?

Thanks Sarah, that's the detail that it helps users to see so a decision can be made on quality. For a non dSLR that is pretty good for ISO 800 and fine for screen shots and small prints.

As Bob says the other is from the iPhone.

Ordered it from Amazon, £249.99, and I can get £30 cashback from Sony, so all in all a pretty good price.

Congratulations, Bob-

Enjoy your new camera and post some photos from time to time.

Thanks, Mark-

No, the Panasonic FZ-28does not give DSLR quality, but for a point and shoot camera it is very creditable. And yes, thanks for the I-Phone answer. I guess in good light it can do pretty well.

Happy Holidays!

It certainly does a better job than my TZ5 too and I have to say there is certainly a good argument for a dSLR user to have a P&S in the kit too for convenience, size etc.

Happy Christmas all!!
