Digital cameras are so versatile now you need to have some additional "needs" and budget limits specified to rate and rank the choices.

A little over a year ago I added a Canon EOS 5D to my Canon A2E, so I can interchange the lenses. The EOS 5D is extremely versatile and capable, but it is not going to fit in your pocket. My daughter just got a nice 10 MegaPixel Canon Powershot G7. It is also very capable, but does not accept a variety of lenses and does fit into your pocket. Very nice cameras, but for different budgets and different interests.

Other makes are likely about the same, and, over the years I have had Yashica, Pentax and Minolta SLR cameras. I switched to Canon about 8 years ago when my last Minolta was dropped by the daughter in Denver airport on the way home from skiing. At the time, the autofocus features of the Canon were, in my opinion, superior. Faster, more accurate and with the ultrasonic motors, quite a bit less noisy. I am nearsighted and the autofocus capabilities developed over the last ten years makes photography much more fun for me, and so this feature bacame a descriminating feature for the different models and makes.

With the digital cameras I am learning the more sophisticated exposure controls, since you get instant feedback, the lesson is "free" once you own the camera and a the memory card, which was not the case before and therefore something I ignored with the film version.

So, let us know more about what your interests are. No need to spend more for features you will never be interested in enough to learn to use. In general, capabilities, like with PC's, are improving monthly, while prices drop so buying a less capable unit now, learning the level of your interests and needs and buying a more capable device in a year or two might be a cost effective path forward. Good luck, Jim
