I am looking for a SLR for taking family photos but mainly for taking pictures at football matches at weekends.

Budget is around 400.

I have looked at the following but not sure whether they are up to the task, I do know that I will need a decent lens too, Canon 1000D and Nikon D3000.

If I can stretch there is also the Canon 450D and 500D.

Over the next few months I will be saving up some more cash to get a lens, is there any suggestions.
