Actually, to change from your old compact lenses to an DSLR is not necessarily very bad, and unless u invest much more into lenses and flashes etc, you could just buy a 300D with kit lens. Maybe a tele lens to go along with it, but it would cost you about 2000 dolars? Something like that. Unless you are really into photography, i would advise keeping your camera. If not, start low, don't need the best DSLR, 300D or D70 will suffice for amateurs like us.
