    Default Help needed for newbie

    Hi all...
    is looking ard for my 1st DSLR,
    jus went to B*ST D*nki jus now to window shop,
    was recommended Sony A100 and Cannon D400.
    Sony A100 comes with 2 Lens, as i think they are clearing stock.
    price is almost the same for these 2 cameras ...
    which should i go for?
    Thanx for reading...

    Check out the Sony A200 instead. It's a newer & improved model that only reached our shores early this week. The price is only < $1.1K.
    Minolta. Konica Minolta. Sony

    I would suggest that you try out both Sony & Canon and decide for yourself. I do not want to create a brand war here.

    agreed with bro sykestang sayings,
    it is the system u are banking on, followed by lenses and other accessories,
    like you, i've a dillemma over branding such as Canon and Nikon systems,
    i siding Canon coz friends are using Canon.
    but in the end i got myself a Nikon coz i went to test it out and hands on on its systems
    and find it better to use to my hands
    cheers, hope this helps
