    so what lens you intend to get? that will limit your budget for your camera.

    get a body with a bright viewfinder and the rest spend on lens ok.

    if you are a newbie to SLR, might be a good idea to pick up a cheap 2nd hand unit first. after getting familiar and all, go buy one really good one.

    Which manual SLR are you using? Why don't you continue using the same brand? Although Canon EOS cameras can't directly use FD lenses, there are adaptors you can buy to allow usage of FD lenses. All Nikon cameras allow mounting of AI, AI-S lenses, but only F100 (Canon EOS 3 equivalent) and the flagship cameras (F4, F5) allows metering with them.
