Hi Johnny Boy, the E300's a good camera, but foraround 400 quid there's better DSLR deals out there. The Nikon D50 is still a good choice, and once the D40s get in the shops, they might be discounted below their 450 RRP. If you can stretch a little, the Canon 400D is also available for less than 500 pounds. Just have a look at our reviews and the price check links at the bottom, along with the Google ads along the side - you'll get an idea of what's available and for how much.
