    Those are not the 5 best SLR cameras---They might be PC Mags five biggest advertisers, but certainly no the the best DSLR's.

    mine is better than yours... :p:)

    there are a bunch of great dslr cameras out at the moment and they continue to improve...

    the olympus that Barry/vreyens has is no toy and the images he posts are an indication of that...as well as his abilities

    I do pro work in a major city and I can tell you YOUR best/top 5 cameras. Consider the following:

    Check all the above lists.
    Go to a camera store and look at the prosumer cameras (or the pro cameras if you have about 5 grand to part with) The above list has them.

    When you look, consider your needs.
    Look for 10 mp or more, a bright screen. features you want and need.
    Ease of use. E.G. the Canon Rebel is great, but settings are kind of arcane. You don't need that.

    Look at higher ASA capabilites. EG 3200. This is an indication that an asa800 shot will survive.

    MP's are not as important above 8mp. Remember a 6 megapixel camera has a native print size of 13 X17. You are usually printing 4 x 6, or 8x10 on your ink jet. The sensors are getting better and some of them share sensor products.
    Speed may be an issue, cmos or ccd? Most are gravitating to cmos after Canon.
    Nikon and Canon have the lenses. Just as in film, the lens is the thing. Price is nice, but
    an outstanding photograph can be ruined by a cheap lens. Consider that photo of the Grand Canyon you shot last summer you had blown up to a 30x40. Sharp, well - except along the edges. Should have sprung for the better lens. Sports Photographers like the Canon lens. Watch the next ball game on TV and you will see the ranks of photographers with the gray Canon cannons. Nikon Lenses are to die for also.

    TRY THIS:rolleyes:: Sony, Olympus, Pentax, etc. all have great features. Try each one, get the feel, and familiarity with each. They all use Compact Flash. Take a handful of chips to the store and shoot a few shots with each camera. Use the same settings and shoot the same things. Then take the chips home and examine the images.

    This is a good profession and an outstanding hobby. Study and you can get as good photographs as any professional with some work. AND don't count out luck!

    Make your own list of 5 in the order win which you like them, then save up the pennies and buy the bet you can. A good camera will last a long time if taken care of.

    Good luck
