I've capped my budget at £400 for a new DSLR...considering the Sony SLT-A33, Canon EOS550D or Nikon D3100 which can all be found within budget.
I'm liking the A33 with it's small size, flip down screen (A35 too much and has lost this feature anyway) and it's impressive feature set. Feel perhaps as a long term investment, the 550D might be better and should have a better image quality than the other two, but is it so much better that I should go without some of the features it misses when compared to the A33 and D3100?
General use really...family, friends, wildlife, etc...and possibly some astro-photography (just bought a telescope!).
Any advice welcome!
