Hi,

Looking to buy a new DSLR camera. I've had compact cameras in the past but feel the need to upgrade to something more professional... I've used an SLR before but not that much and a long time ago now, so class me as a n00b. I'm also expecting my first baby in a couple of weeks (yep, I'm one of those) so want to get the best image quality as possible for my buck.

I'll be using it in and outside. I imagine I'll most likely be taking shots of the new arrival at first, but hope to use it for other projects, buying different lenses when needed to improve my photography skills.

I've 550 to spend (with a little wriggle room) on the body and lens.

Thanks so much for your help!
