And people still try to find excuses for making the poor decisions of these 2 makers still sound good!

Seriously, look beyond the 2 camps. Especially in the budget to entry-level DSLR range, there are many many better choices.
agree... first of all if u already hv a budget then why look at something beyond ur budget... u noe camera system buey bei liao one... go n get a cheap cheap entry first lah.. nikon and sony are quite good.. if u already hv an eye for olympus then go for it.. its value for money... any body will do lah... end of day its ur SKILLS....

since its ur first dslr.. i would suggest... get a single lens kit... buy another good lens to cover the range u want.. like 18-200 or something for a good start cos u might not get use to changing lens out in the open and let u practice take picture until song song...

once u learn ur style.. u think like s-league can go semi-pro, sell off ur old stuff then buy ur 450d or something or A700, d700... n upgrade to fast lens...

we alway wanted to buy something to value for money n last a long time.. but put it this way.. if u still cant decide... get a prosumer camera...
