  • With camera manufacturers trying to squeeze as many segments out of the digital SLR market as there are f-stops, there's a wide range of models available. To zoom in on the best dSLR for your needs, check out our article on the Top 10 digital SLR cameras on the market today (as of June 2010), listed from least to most expensive.

    Sony Alpha DSLR-A230
    The A230's $450 list price (with an 18-55mm lens) is within striking distance of the high-end point-and-shooters, and with the recent announcement of a follow-up DSLR-A290 coming in July for $500, you're likely to find even better deals on the A230. But despite the bargain price tag, it's a solid entry-level dSLR. It's relatively light and compact at 15.9 ounces and 5.0x3.8x2.7 inches, which will appeal to those looking to upgrade from a point-and-shoot to a dSLR. And because there's a pretty basic feature set, operation is relatively simple and straightforward.
  • Canon essentially created the entry-level dSLR market with its first Rebel back in 2003, and has been staving off the competition since. Though the $550 list price has been significantly discounted off its original price when it was first released, the Rebel XS still holds its own against newer, similarly priced base-level models.

    Please, Please make a DSLR body which will work with the older AI lenses and couple automatically for match-needle exposure readings.

    I have the same issue with my Minolta Maxxum lenses from my 35mm camera. I understand the Sony Alphas will work with these lenses. Anyone out there who has experience with them? Should I do it, and is there any great reason to go to one of the more glorius mdels or is the A-230 OK for mostly casual photography?
