    3.) Sony A230L
    4.) Sony A330L

    Well I only can choose from these four dslr due to some reason. So guys can you give some feedback on which dslr will be the best? Thanks

    And I do have a SIGMA Aspherical 28-200mm lens which was from my old SLR. I wonder if this lens fits into any one of the above DSLR?
    what is ur budget for ur entire gear at this point of time (or within the next one year)?
    when u look at dSLR systems, u look at the system and what it offers, not just which model of camera.
    tell us ur budget so we have a better idea where u are heading.
    in general i will pick D3000 (nikon system). but this is just my opinion.

    Erm my budget will be below $1000, as I want to be independent and use my own savings to purchase one. And I wonder how much can my lens be sold for?

    The lens will not be able to fetch much but if you want to continue using the lens, you may want to consider getting a 2nd hand A500/550 and save the balance for a dry cabinet.

    I don't mind selling it to fund for my new DSLR. And the reason why I only chose those its because I want to get it from courts for the installment payment.

    The sigma lens is worth very little money nowadays. And the film SLR is also not worth much and hard to sell. Only much much older film cameras are more movable as they are collectibles. You can try. But don't have too high hopes for it.

    Keep the lens if you are buying a Sony dslr + kit lens. If can't use, then sell...

    Depends on you.18-55 would be good for landscapes as its 18mm(After x1.5 its 27mm) wide whereas your 28-200 is only 28mm(After x1.5 its 42mm) wide
