... I just want to know your point of view. As some of you know, last time I'm walking around and checking prizes of DSLRs. Actually I noticed two cameras that interest me (Nikon d50 or Canon 350d). they cost more less $900 (+$100 for a kit). Then... ok... let's imagine I buy one of those cameras (nevermind which one) and then if I need a zoom I have to buy a tele-lens or something like 70-300 mm and that costs again. Then if I want to shoot macro I need another lens (so extra costs). BUT on the other hand, the market is full of, I'd say, combo cameras like for example Fuji s7000 Zoom (I know it's quite old camera) but: it has the same resolution as Nikon d50, it has "built in" macro mode, huge zoom, but only one not-changed lens (so lower further costs). So my question is... why to buy DSLRs ??? Thanks in advance for replies, and sorry if this kind of question was already asked here, but now I completely don't know what to do and how much ca$$ I'll need.
