I have just sold my superb Fujifilm 2400Z and 6800Z cameras as I would like to upgrade them. Firstly I need to get a compact digicam. Price range 200 - 250 quid. Must be compact and feel sturdy. 4 - 5 megapixels Easy to use, mainly for my wife. Must take great pictures. Must have short shutter lag (need to get the moment when taking pics of the kids) Good movie clips would be good. Currently quite keen on the sony P100. The Canon A95 sounds fantastic but is quite plasticky and is bigger and heavier than the sony. Secondly I would like to get a digital SLR. An entry level DSLR is fine, must have interchangeable lenses. Canon 300D is an obvious choice but I already have a Pentax Z20 with Sigma tele zoom lens, so I have considered the *istD. However this is much more expensive. I've also read that there was a problem with some sigma lenses and this camera. Does anyone know more about this as it would defeat the purpose of specifically looking at pentax. The *istDS should be out soon and will be cheaper than the *istD, anyone know when it will be available? Should I also consider the Nikon D70 or anything else? I know some of you may propose the G6 as bridging my needs with just one camera but I think I would prefer to go with the practicality of a true compact and the "professionalism" of a proper SLR. Finally, a constraint is that I'm hoping friends will bring the cameras over (certainly the compact at least). They cannot be tied down waiting for a delivery from an online store so I need to get the cameras from a retailer like Jessops. Who does good prices?
