Welcome to both photography and camera labs!

Nice start with your photos. What equipment do you use?

I've been trying different gear within past few weeks(Canon XS/XSI, Nikon D90, Olympus 520, Pentax K20D and latest Pentax X-m) and I still don't know what I want :(

Like I said, I'm just starting to look at the photography as a real hobby :oops:

hopping to take some courses, if time/money permits
there is so much to learn......

If you're really into wildlife you may want to consider a tougher camera if you spend a lot of time out in the elements. Pentax tends to focus on weather sealing and tough bodies. If you want a good all around camera, look for something from Nikon, Canon, or Sony.

Thank you, guys.
I leaning towards Canon XS.
I tried Pentax K20D and K-x and, to be honest, did not like the results
My opinion - I'm not any good with them, I would prefer camera with "indoor" IS - cheaper lens. But Canon gave me pics I liked best, so I'm waiting on the deal for XS or XSI, would love a D90 or 40D - but he cost :(
