oh is the E520 better than the E510? And what's the price range? Is D5000 and E620 worth it?

There is no 1 best set up. Every camera is capable. Since you prefer Nikon and Olympus, get a feel of their cameras and see which fits you.

Btw, do a search, and you'll find many threads exactly like yours.

anugrah, is there anything in particular you are looking out for your new dSLR?

Also, do you already have experience using a point and shoot / prosumer?

yeah i have experience. I want a good solid dSLR, bang for it's buck, most importantly, performance, photo quality, anything that's the best of entry-level dSLR, or 2nd hand midrange dSLRs. The dSLRs, I'm eyeing on is, D90, D5000, E-520, E-510, E-620. And can you guys advice me on thr CF and SD cards that I need to get. Thanks.:)

Please open your browser, type in www.dpreview.com, go to the review section and read there. All technical questions are answered there, specs about memory cards you will find on the main page for each camera. Do also read the direct comparison between cameras of the same range. We don't know where your level of 'bang for buck' is. What some consider as good deal will be dismissed by others as 'suboptimal'. Please make your own judgment based on your requirements.
All entry-level cameras are capable of delivery decent images in technical terms and in the hands of a skilled photographer even a compact can deliver stunning pictures. Your skills and knowledge will have a greater impact on the quality of the final photo than simple specs or gradual differences in ISO performance.

thanks, i've read there before, the analysis are so detailed.

Go to the shops, have hands-on session and get in touch with the cam literally. No point having a camera that has a slight edge by some specs but you get mad about the operating and the buttons.

if you mean you prefer Nikon and Olympus lens, might want to try Canon as there are various Nikon to Canon mount adapter as well as Olympus to Canon mount adapter as far as i know. Most will be manual focus though.
