cdandvdpub:I like the idea of holding the camera before buying it. It's so hard to buy online if you haven't seen what you're getting.
Yeah...I checked out a couple of different local camera stores after I'd narrowed my choices down to 2-3 different camera brands and I found it quite helpful as I was able to hold and "shoot" with different models. If the local camera shops pricing had been within $30-$50 of the online prices, I would have bought locally but they couldn't come close to matching the price. What I did buy locally was a camera bag and a few other odds and ends...

>>And the idea of buying a camera for the lens I guess makes a little sense.

Actually, I think it makes quite a bit of sense. If you had existing lenses that you liked/felt were good lenses and could use if you bought one brand of camera over another, I think that would certainly give weight to buying that particular brand. If you are buying all new, then I think most of the upper end camera brands--Nikon, Canon, Olympus--all have good lenses and there are also good 3rd party lenses out there--I've been pleased with my Tamron lenses.

Do keep us posted on your research...always fun to live vicariously...'-}}
