If you want to get an SLR expect to be paying huge coin for lenses. Many of the digi cams have optics you would pay a fortune for in separate DSLR lenses.

The Olympus C8080 is one incredible camera . It along with the new 8 mega pixel zoom equiped offerings from the various manufacturers makes going DSLR much more difficult to decide to do cost and even quality wise ..

my two cents

about the only Digi cam that worked at all well in my experiance in low light was the Olympus 2100C.I tried the H1,the Panosinic offerings and the new Canon ...all were horrid in low light and they were the reason I went DSLR . ...BUT ..now with the new digi cam offerings from Sony and Samsumg ...I think the low light deal may have been solved..:-)

I know about the new Sony DSC-R1, but what's this about a new Samsung? :?

EDIT: Nevermind, I found it.

Anybody who wants a camera at a lower price than the foregoing cameras might want to consider the Canon S1IS. Here's a picture taken by it at its full 10x (optical) zoom -

No, it was 10x optical - but I guess it depends on what you expect. My point was that the stop sign & the car number plate don't (imho) show much sign of camera shake.

I have to agree with VAtechtigger that the picture from the Canon S1IS makes me want to run as far away from Canon as possible. Notwithstanding the fact that the stop sign and license plates are somewhat sharp, the chromatic aberration is ghastly. Sharpness is important, but it means nothing if the colors are wrong. This photo convinces me that my decision to buy the Panasonic FZ20 was a wise one.

I'm only mentioning this because I see the Panasonic FZ20 has been mentioned. If chromatic aberration bothers you, I see that Steve rates the Panasonic FZ4 and FZ5 more highly than the FZ20.
