    That is a bit complicated, if you want to preserve the environment light, sure you don't use flash, but you will need tripod or stable support in order not to get camera shake. But if you are taking picture of moving/action people, you will need flash to capture those movement clearly.

    f/8 don't give good colour, but by stopping down the lens by 1 to 2 stop (e.g. f/4 stop down to f/8 in SLR's lens), it will improve on the sharpness of the photo, especially on the edge of the photo.
    Colour is more dependant on the better material (glass vs plastic), build, coating etc, which most likely found in more high end kind of lens.

    Hmm..still got some doubts to clear..

    - How to choose a good lens? Surely not looking at the price right?

    - what does 14mm lenses (22mm equivalent) means?

    depends, best is research on the lens and do a judgement if those reviews can be trusted

    - what does 14mm lenses (22mm equivalent) means?
    on digital camera, most of the sensor are smaller than 35mm film thus creating a crop factor. For any lens that attacted to it, the focal length will be multiplied by the crop factor.
    like the: 14mm lens x crop factor = 22mm
    crop factor depends on indivisual cam, for nikon most are 1.5x

I saw some article about Nikon D50. Is it really that good? And also i am interested to sign up photography course in Temasek Poly for the near future, I hope that the DSLR is suitable for it. Currently i am using Panasonic FZ5. So far so good but just that the image wasn't sharp enough and EVF/LCD is just too dark in dark area. Please help.. Thanks.
    the D50 really is that good. according to some reviews, the image quality is arguably slightly better than the D70s, in terms of lower noise and less moire, and more vivid colours straight out of the camera. you can get a D50 kit for $1200 including GST, which is well within your budget of $1700. With the D50 kit, you can easily take any photography course in Temasek Poly or elsewhere. with the $500 left over, you may want to buy a mid-tele zoom lens, external flash or tripod in the future.
