Hi, I have three hot D-SLR camera variants in mind, and here are they in random order >>> The Canon EOS 400D + the Canon EF-S 17-55mm f/2.8 IS USM The Nikon D80 + the Nikon 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6G IF-ED AF-S DX VR Nikkor The Sony Alpha dSLR-A100 + the Sony 16-80mm f/3.5-4.5 DT Carl Zeiss Vario-Sonnar T* SAL-1680Z ****Important note: I would need to have one of those D-SLR camera + lens combos above, by the 22 of July; 2007 at the very latest.**** I have some photographic assignments to perform, on the 22 of July; 2007. Well, I just want a "walk around combo" for general purpose (shoot anything) photography in good enough image quality. Which of the above combos would be the most ideal/suitable for my photography, in your opinion? Thanks a lot in advance. Your help would be very much appreciated.
