Sony DSLR-A100

The DSLR-A100 camera, Sony's first high-end digital SLR, is expected to hit the market in July. The camera will be based on the Konica Minolta Maxxum/Dynax mount system, which means owners of those lenses will be able to use them on the new camera. Sony purchased a part of Konica Minolta's SLR business earlier this year.

Canon EOS 5D

The Canon EOS 5D uses an image sensor the same size as a frame of film on a traditional 35mm SLR camera, so lenses work no differently compared to 35mm film SLRs.

The cost for this 12.8-megapixel camera, without a lens, is less than $3,000, including a current $300 rebate.
