    your 8080 is already quite good, i used to have the 5050
    you can buy 3rd party add on lenses

    do a google and search
    or check the MO corner, consumers corner

    there are some really good shots coming from P&S and prosumer cameras.

    if you still have to change wait for photokina then bbb

    in any event, its like taking a sledghammer to a nut. or like telling a guy who wants to buy Cherry QQ, hey dont waste your time, get a 7 series instead.

    Why not get something really cheap to start with, like a d30? Goes for about 400 on BnS. Seeing as how you're just starting it will be enough. You can then buy some lenses with the remaining budget.

    in the near future when the new cameras hit the market
    there will be lots of ppl selling off their cameras to upgrade

    that will be a good time to catch some bargains

    are you sure? I thought quite standard that they will add 5%.
    If you get equote, don't they tell you it is for cash or nets only?

    yoh yoh.....

    as usual, i would advise that if must instalment, why not save up if u are not urgently going for it?

    or while saving, look for 2nd one ? once the new nikon is out, i'm sure the BnS will be flooded with D70/D70s! and also kit lens....

    yup i agree with you... save up for it instead of installment. and check out BnS in a few weeks time. don't be hasty with your purchase.

    Not to start a war but I find nikon cheaper than canon in terms of camera and lenses (which is the sole reason for my decision to choose brand). Installment can only be done with big shops like Denki or Courts or HN but even with 0% interest you still pay more so I suggest you save up and when you finally buy, camera could be cheaper by then.

    the D30 is the predecessor of the D60, which was the predecessor of the 10D, 20D, now 30D.

    discontinued a millennium ago, in DSLR years.
