Hello all...and thanks in adavance for your answers and comments.

I own the Sony F707 and LOVE the image quality, however i have outgrown it and its lack of zoom.

I am happy with Sony and am interested in the F828 but i also have interest in the D- SLR also.

My dilema...i want GREAT pictures with the ability to zoom and wide angle at sporting events/family events etc...I beleive you can purchase additional lenses for the Sony F828 which would make it the perfect choice, however am i missing out on something else...should i consider the Rebel or Nikon for other reasons...(money is no reason)

I am no professional butI have owned good quality cameras and love to take pictures....


please voice your opinions... thanks:?

I have the Canon Digital Rebel and love it. I like the ability to be able to control the settings to how I want. That and there are a lot of lens choices out there from wide angle to zoom. I currently have two lens, the lens that came with the camera (kit lens) and a Tamron 28-300.

Some things to consider.
The DSLR will be heavier.
It will cost more.
You'll probably end up carrying more equipment with it (but this isn't actually a requirement.)

But in return you get:
Faster shutter responce.
More variety of focal lengths (you might own more lenses, but you don't have to bring them all with you.)
Less noise at higher ISOs

If the second list is worth the hassle of the first list, then get a DSLR.

Also realize that you are buying into a system. Lenses, flashes... and any other extra you and up with. You will end up spending more money there than on the camera body.

So make sure that the system fits your needs too. Most of that will last much longer than any given camera body.

I have not used any other Digicams other than the Canon DR so I can't say what the differences are.
