I haven't bought a digital camera in almost five years. Last time, I relied on Steve's users to help me chose my Olympus which is now considered ancient. Now what I'd like is something that I could use to take action shots, basketball, volleyball, etc. I've looked at the Olympus Evolt and have some familiarity with SLR cameras but I don't want more camera than I can handle. Any thoughts?

My feeling is if you are going to try and get good indoor sports pics you'll need to go with a DSLR. Sports like gymnastics are a NO FLASH sport, which is mainly what I shot... that being said I never use a flash for sports... And if the gym in your area is like the ones around here you need to allow room in your budget for some fast lens (large maximum aperture). Think the bottom line is you'll need a DSLR... and then prepared to spend the rest of your waking life trying to figure our which lens you're going to acquire next and the best spots in the house to hide the reciepts... :G
