I am interested in taking baseball pictures. I need to take pictures during the meetings of a boys team of my sun in Rome (Italy) in daylight, but maybe sometimes with artificial light. Normally I can stay in the decout or near, sometimes outside behind the catcher.

Last year I take pictures with a film SRL, Pentax MX5n with Tamron 28-200, but now I need a digital camera to publish the pictures in the website of the team.

I have a short list f cameras but I have some doubt because I cannot try it in a real sitation:

1) Panasonic FZ20: I am attrcted by the lens more than IS not useful in this case and the price (about 600 €), but I am afraid for the shot delay and the efficency of the EVF

2) Canon 350D (RebelXT) very attractive for the resolution and the speed of autofocus, but what lens.

3) Olympus E300 with 14-45 and 40-150 (about 1200 €) also for the resolution and the quality of the lenses (I have two OM Oly with many very good lenses)

Have you some suggestion, consider that my budget is limited to the figure specified or little more.
Thanks in advance,

If you have Pentax history, I do not understand why you did not include *istDS in your list - all you current gear will work without any fuss

i agree.. the *stDS is a nice little dSLR for an attractive price.. it also boasts quite good performance at higher ISO's which would be an attractive asset during evening games...
