    I've not long brought a DSLR so went though all the research, if I was gonna buy a Sony I'd go for the A350 you can only get hold of them second hand now.

    I'd say stick with either of the big brands TBH, going to have more choice for lenses and stuff. How much you looking at spending?

    Perhaps a Nikon D40,D50,D80,D90 or perhaps Canon EOS 350D, though not too familure with cannon products myself, but they are pretty damn good so i am aware and choice of lenses is pretty good. I think you can get the Nikon D40 with the 18 - 55mm lense as a kit for about £300.
    Probably the ONLY Astra Mk3 sitting on Corsa D SXI rims!

    I use a nikon D40 (i think) to take pictures of peoples eyes at the eye clinic, if it can zoom to the back off your eye ball it must be a good camera....

    I have 2 sony dSLR's.

    Sony a350 & Sony a380, both are very good camera's cant fault them in anyway. there is also a very good range of lenses.

    Sony are a late starter in dSLR's and that kind of puts people off buying Sony camera's I have used a few other dSLR's and wasn't impressed by them but thats just me.

    Best thing you can do is go to a camera shops and ask to try them/hold them and see what feels right to you.

    If you still after a Sony camera just drop me a PM I can send you some samples or ask any questions you may have

    I have a Canon 'Digital Rebel' which is just how the Americans brand the 350D I believe. Love it! Good quality pictures and its easy and quite cheap to get lenses because its back-compatible.
