Get the Oly then, it's a fine camera, you'll have no regrets..
I think the Canon and Nikon systems are great too. What kind of lenses are you looking at? I've found that the Nikon and Canon systems have been quite affordable, especially on the Nikon side...
The problem is:.
I like wide... so I have doubts about the 4/3.... but the lens from zuico seamed very nice.I'm gonna follow your suggestion and compare prices of lens a little better..
I've always hated the D40, personally. It's fine for beginners, but advanced users will want to use prime lenses, and Nikon's prime lenses won't' autofocus with it..
If you want wide, there are options available from all manufacturers. The question is: how wide do you want (28mm equivalent? 24mm equivalent? Wider?), and how much you're willing to spend (a setup could run anywhere from $400 to $1000)..
You can trust me on this. You should go post your questions regarding 4/3 and available wide angle Zuiko and other lenses on the Oly SLR forum.Regards,Steve.

Ok!I'll go there as soon as I get some sleep (3:15 in the morning here).
Ive posted this here because, well, I'm a beginner. I wanted to learn about Photography so I've bought one P&S with good zoom to take pictures (OLY 510SPUZ) (I wanted a zoom camera so that I would get to know better what I liked to photograph).I liked it a lot but I miss some shots due to poor focus and NOISE..
I know a better "machine" wont make me a better photographer, still it would be nice to at least have crappy photos with good quality..
