    That favors the bigger sensor. NEX-C3 is lower priced than the 5N, if that makes a difference. But at this size, I really like to have a viewfinder too. At the end of the day you may need 2...

    Caution on the "adapters" for MD era Minolta to Sony Alpha bodies. I'm pretty sure they require a lens inside, which magnifies the focal length by 1.4X (or more). This is in addition to the 1.5X...

    The only "adjustment" you should need to make with the lens is the zoom. The zoom on a DSLR lens allows you to be much, much more precise than with the push button zoom controls on a compact. All...

    Reviews indicate the Canon is better for big prints, the Sony is better for quick-grab snapshots (good for E-mail and web posts).

    We all experience that, especially on our first DSLR shopping effort. Frankly I don't depend much on store staff for camera selection. A few stores have some staff who are fair minded about the...

    Oly - Nice bodies, nice colors straight out of the camera. Current rumors for the company are not good, unfortunately.

    For the old, manual era, SLR lenses I would also consider the Sony NEX series. But I don't know exactly what adapters work for NEX.

    I assume you really meant the Canon EOS 60D model? Anyways, your requirements are pretty basic. Practically any DSLR on the market will meet them. Of course camera nuts are known to split hairs,...

    Again, they are all pretty good. Just go with the design and/or features you like best.

    High ISO noise (for low light) is a tiny bit less with the IXUS 220. But personally I like the design of the controls on the SX150 much better. Just get whichever one fits you best.

    Download sample images from the reviews for the SX230 and ZS8. See if they are good enough for you or not. If "not", then the selection does move to the ILC cameras. In addition to the NEX and J1,...

    For most practical purposes, no difference. If you split hairs, there can be differences, but that can go either way. You need to look up tests of the specific sensors.

    Any DSLR is going to be a lot quicker than a point-and-shoot, so that should not be much of a concern. Unless you really need to blaze away in continuous mode. What brand is your friend shooting? ...

    RAW or JPG? My view is that Sony is Ok for RAW work, but as a JPG shooter I'd lean more toward Canon or Nikon. The A580 is one of Sony's nicer designs, both physically and for control layout. ...

    60D was over my budget too. So I got a refurbished 50D for only a little more than a D5100. More on the 50D on this thread -
