if your going to get a DSLR then I would suggest you go to a camera shop and ask to see 2 or 3 options, and mix up the manufactures...

the reason I say that is because you want something that fits your hands, and something that you feel comfortable with.... quality wize Nikon and Canon are a very safe bet for a first camera, thee are many supporters for either camera and you wont find a difinitive answer when asking "which one"

go and have a look at them, as the person in the shop to put batteries in and see what its like to access the controls and functions........find out which one suits you more

I would think so Ian, the Panasonic seems to have a 5.75mm x 4.71mm sensor and something like a canon 400d has a 22mm x 15mm sensor size, its not difficult to imagine that since both have a similar amount of pixels (8 or 10meg) then you would expect a little more noise from the panasonic. However these compact SLR like cameras are very good these days and you may find it difficult to notice the difference all the time, but I would expect low light photography to be much better on the SLR one and since SLR's have independant lenses you can always improve sharpness with adding a different lens on a SLR if you wish......

would the step up in image quality from a panasonic lumix fz-8 to a digital slr be much greater?

cheers

yep they are mine....

I got a 400d a little while back when we went to Kenya, a little in at the deep end but I was quite pleased with some of the shots.

got a lon way to go though and would love to go on a proper course and develop more but they are so expensive

recently bought a d60 mate, excellent piece of kit, amazing differnce in the quality of the pictures from a compact with same megapixels. read some good reports of the d40 too which can be bought relatively cheap now.
