    Default Hello from a 'Newbie'

    Hi folks, i'm pondering on a return to SLR photography after a break of several years, i've owned a few 35MM SLR's over the years but lost interest once the kids got into their teens!

    I've owned a Konica Minolta A200 for over five years but i'm pondering on an upgrade, just don't know what to go for yet.

    A belated 'Thank you' Nigel. My head is spinning at the moment from reading so many reviews on present day and discontinued DSLR's!

    I'm in two minds about buying new or getting a high spec' older model secondhand.
    I'm more concerned with out and out image quality, not too bothered about recording video, i've revised my budget to the 700 - 800 mark.

    Do i buy a Canon EOS 1000D body and go for a decent lens in the 17mm - 85mm range or the 18mm - 200mm? or do i go for a EOS 450 body (Secondhand with 18-55 IS lens)?

    Then there is the Nikon 5000 body plus lens, or do i go for an old Nikon D80 plus lens?........HELP!!!!
