I guess it will be best to wait for a promotion. Will get more value for money and more freebies too :D

Yupz, at least EOS 30 grade. And since you've the G2, might as well go for the EOS 30.

E-quoted by CP :
Canon EOS 300 c/with EF 28-90 mm lens @ S$690.00
free with purchase ( while offer/stock last )
- Canon EF 75-300 mm III lens

Camera Workshop selling 2nd hand EOS 300 at $350
Wah, very good deal! But Ninja, EOS 30 or EOS 300 is cheapper? Pls excuse my ignorance, newbie in SLR.

Actually, just the stupid flash.

Then again, if you do end up with a Canon SLR, personally I think you should get something like that 550EX.. and mounting that on the G2 will be a bit funny..

No DOF preview, cheapo plasticky mount, single dial control are among the reasons I don't recommand the lower end cameras.

Let's say between the Nikons, the F60, F65 and F80. Which is recommended? (Bearing in mind that I will be using it for the next 3-4 yrs at least.)

F80 if you have the cash. Getting something too low end is only if you're not into photography whatsoever.

In my opinion, every model fits a budget and the F55 fills that gap for those who are strapped with budget to buy their first body and has been heard so much about worthy reasons to invest into the Nikon system.

Given a choice, I would love to buy a good condition 2nd hand Dynax 7 which is nearly impossible to find it now at any 2nd hand camera stores. So far only seen 2nd hand Dynax 9 at $1750. I own a Dynax 5 and I won't hesitate to recommend it to anyone. It has the price of a F65 with the features of a F80.

There is a Chinese forum specially discussing Dynax 5 at http://www.cameraunion.net/forum/showthread.php?threadid=49937
btw, if you really spend a month browsing for cameras/lenses info, you will notice Minolta system/lenes are cheaper than other brands and yet quality is the same.I suggest you get a 1st hand camera as they got life cycle.
