    hmm.. I see..
    But I'm using SLR now, which is quite expensive for me, coz I shoot about 3-4 rolls every week. I am thinking that getting a DSLR would be better for me, isn't it?

    if you have in mind, for the budget on accessories, then go ahead with your current system.
    just get a digital body of the system that you are having now.

    yup agreed. wat brand system u using now? if nikon u can get d70s body with 1.5k i think. since u already have your SLR system now i suppose u just need a digital body. i assume you already have lens, dry cab all those...

    u considering 2nd hand? can check out the BnS here. sure got something for u.

    I'm using KM, just a little bit worried that Sony taking over KM, afraid that I might have difficulty with the service centre, warranty, etc. So thinking whether I should get KM5D or change the whole gears.

    go for d50 with kit lens if you are not very particular about image quality. the kit lens looks good enough to me if you stop down abit . for d50 i tink i only miss out the DOF preview and backlit LCD. if low on budget for a telephoto, maybe can try out the sigma 70-300mm APO DG Macro. im using it, i wun say it is the best but think it is very price worthing

    You need to think about whether or not you are likely to want to upgrade your gear later. If you are a gearhead (like me), then you'll want to start planning beyond the current purchase. Nikon and Canon have probably the widest range of lens and leave plenty of room for upgrade. Buying what you can use in the long term (without further upgrade) *may* save you money in the long run. This may mean that you will have to hold out for a while before getting each item if budget is an issue.
