well being that im moving from my point and shoot camera to a SLR I was wondering if you guys could reccomed between these two cameras as they are the ones that I am predominantly looking at. Canon EOS Elan 7N and Nikon N80 theyre both around 400 bux, even thought the cannon is a bit more expensive. Additionally, as I understand, once you get lenses from one company, they will not work with a camera from another company, say canon lens on a minolta body.... is this correct. Thanks. Oh and please refrain from recomending cameras that brech the USD $500.oo price ceiling I have set for myself. Thanks. -edit- I should also stress that I have absolutely no desire to get a digital camera.
