    OK, I'm going to say Nikon because I like them. Nikon and Canon both make great gear.

    I've not held the N60 but I have an N90s that I really like. I've heard of great things about the F100 and if you can swing an F5 more power to you.

    Does your Minolta not work anymore? If it does then why not see about getting another lens for it? Something in the 24mm range if you like wide angle shots.

    If you go canon, I would suggest an Elan II. Its a little older but has just about the same specs as the Elan 7 which I have, but for alot less money.

    Canon Glass is usually slightly cheaper. For the Nikon stuff, Now I dont really like this guy, but Ken Rockwell has reviewed in pretty good depth most of the Nikon 35mm rigs.
    Nikon Reviews
    He doesnt seem to like the N60
    Nikon N60 (F60)

    I would avoid the Quantaray glass.

    What do you want in your new SLR that your minolta currently does not do? Have you thought about getting a newer AF Minolta SLR?

    Ive only held an EOS 2000, never used it. But it felt small in my hand, kind of like a digital rebel compared to a XXD model.

    I think the EOS has more features.

    so should i roll with the EOS 2000..(This camera takes fantastic pictures, is in excellent shape, comes with 58mm UV
    haze filter,Targus bag, and a canon neck strap, this camera is automatic and
    it has a manual mode for full creative flexability. )
