i shoot in all auto mode too but i still got a dslr.

reasons being it's a lot faster in (auto) focusing, in zooming. and also can control aperture and/or shutter speed to get the desired effects. i got an oly e500 with 2 kits lens tat gives me enough coverage a normal compact wont. and better image quality.

U should get DSLR if u need these:
- DSLR has a bigger sensor hence better image quality
- DSLR do better night scene (less noisy) if u shoot night scene
- DSLR can couple with flash with TTL etc
- DSLR can change lens example 10mm to 1000mm, if u like
- I know u shoot in auto mode, but one day if u want to experiment in manual exposure or manual focusing, u need DSLR

Get a 2nd hand one if you really want since you only use the P mode. Do bear in mind the lenses, filters and dry cabinet that you will need when you are in the DSLR bandwagon.

As DSLR prices gets cheaper n cheaper, it is a no brainer to just get it as opposed to buy a PnS. Just sign up with any cheap basic course on photography n u will sure to make full use of e DSLR functions. Even if u r a technophobic, the auto mode in DSLR will do a good job too. :)

hi, check out olympus dual kit package. 2 lens plus a body, at quite a reasonable rate.
DSLR is addictive, many settings available to play around with... :)

But, with the D40, you only get autofocus when using an AF-S or AF-I lens, which are damn expensive. So be careful! The initial outlay is low, but lens purchases afterwards are expensive on the D40.

Pentax K100D (alan photo, mscolor, cathay photo etc.) , K110D (dunno about local availability).

Comes with anti-shake for all lenses ;D

I'd say go for the K10D or Sony A100 in that case...
