I am looking to get a good SLR, I have quite a bit of experience in photography but this will be my first digital SLR. I do have a budget of about 500, though i will spend more if i have to. I am really looking at a Nikon or a Canon. I have looked at everything from the D40, D90 (which is a bit out of my budget) and the EOS 500 and 1000.
I want the camera for hobby and possible professional use.
So if anyone can suggest the best one that would be great.
