    After ahving Fujifilm 2800 for 4 years, and being frustrated by its low
    light performance, speed, flash, and lack of controls I have decided to
    move one step up. My usage is general indoor and outdoor, some nature,
    mainly family occasion (indoor, with and without flash) and some portrait.
    The low noise and speed od DSLRs is attarctive to me but if I choose a DSLR
    I will use it with a single zoom lens, I will not be carrying multiple
    lenses around.

    I cannot choose between Canon 350D and Nikon D50 (or a good P&S). From the
    reviews it seems D50 has better noise characteristics but 350D has higer
    resolution and is sharper. The kit lens of D50 seems better than that of
    350D. If I go with d50 probably I will go with the 18-70 zoom that is
    standatd on D70.

    I would appreciate sharing your experience and thoughts. My case agains
    most P&S's is their high noise level and speed, but if there are good
    candidates, I will consider them.

    rec.photo.digital.zlr which deal with SLR and high-end non-SLR digital

    I know that for me the size, weight and cost of the DSLR system are
    difficult to justify when compared against the capabilities of, for
    example, the Panasonic FZ5 or Nikon Coolpix 8400.

    have a look at http://www.dpreview.com/ where you will find many

    The newly offered Panasonic FZ 30 might be worth a perusal.
