I was introduced to this forum. I am new (and not so new) to photography, and this is my maiden post. Let me explain. I have an old Nikon FM2 with a 35-105 lens which I last used in 1999/2000, and intermittently after that. I have been using digital compacts since, and I still have my old trusty Nikon 950, which I bought sometime in 2000. While this camera gives me great 4R pictures, I find that I cannot enlarge the pictures beyond 5R size. For enlargements, I still have to rely on my FM2.
I am now ready to take the plunge into the world of SLR digital photography, and I have narrowed my choices to these 3 brands: Canon (350D?), Nikon (D70 or 50?), Olympus (E-300?)
I want a camera to take pictures and do some enlargements (maybe up to Super 8R, and on occassion, to 12R).
I am inclined towards the Canon and Olympus (maybe because it's 8 megapixel?). Of course, if I can find a compelling reason to get the D70, I'll get it.
Is the 8mp better than the 6mp? What other factors do I have to look out for? Can you old timers provide some advice?
THanks a bunch.... Cheers
