I've alwayswas aNikon fan and I had a couple 35mm Nikons. Latelly I was using point and shot cameras because first I couldn't afford a high end SLR and the low ends quality were far from the point I would ever consider to purchase one.

I've never considered to purchase a Pentax until I tried the Nikon D50. I took one of my memories to a store and shot a fewsamples then reviewed them at home. I suggest you do the same to get your own experience. I was also inclined to spend a little less money and get the Canon S3 Si just because I think 6 MP is no longer ok. Since many other cameras now come 8MP and above, Pentax 6MP isn't right. Yet, Canon S3 does not let you save RAW and that was a terrible drawback for me.

I would probably not buy a camera that does nothave B/Wmode only if I don't have aPC.

In my experience the Nikon D50 captured terrible imagesand I still cant believe it and the grain isdisgusting in highISO. Also the camera + zoomlenswas very heavyand without a tripod it wasvery hard for meto get a steady image.

Just to let you know... I decided on a camera. I eventually ordered a Canon EOS 350D aka "Digital Rebel XT"

Thanks, everybody, for the advice and opinions!
