    I guess it will be best to wait for a promotion. Will get more value for money and more freebies too

    Yupz, at least EOS 30 grade. And since you've the G2, might as well go for the EOS 30.

    E-quoted by CP :
    Canon EOS 300 c/with EF 28-90 mm lens @ S$690.00
    free with purchase ( while offer/stock last )
    - Canon EF 75-300 mm III lens

    Camera Workshop selling 2nd hand EOS 300 at $350

    What are the accessories that can be shared between a G2 and a Canon SLR?

    Actually, just the stupid flash.

    Then again, if you do end up with a Canon SLR, personally I think you should get something like that 550EX.. and mounting that on the G2 will be a bit funny..

    No DOF preview, cheapo plasticky mount, single dial control are among the reasons I don't recommand the lower end cameras.

    Let's say between the Nikons, the F60, F65 and F80. Which is recommended? (Bearing in mind that I will be using it for the next 3-4 yrs at least.)

    F80 if you have the cash. Getting something too low end is only if you're not into photography whatsoever.

    Given a choice, I would love to buy a good condition 2nd hand Dynax 7 which is nearly impossible to find it now at any 2nd hand camera stores. So far only seen 2nd hand Dynax 9 at $1750. I own a Dynax 5 and I won't hesitate to recommend it to anyone. It has the price of a F65 with the features of a F80.

    There is a Chinese forum specially discussing Dynax 5 at http://www.cameraunion.net/forum/sho...threadid=49937
    btw, if you really spend a month browsing for cameras/lenses info, you will notice Minolta system/lenes are cheaper than other brands and yet quality is the same.I suggest you get a 1st hand camera as they got life cycle.
