Hi -I am new to this Forum/site ,am hoping to move to an SLR ,have researched online but really need more advice before I purchase.Reviews seem to go on about video quality but I rarely take any.I don't like looking at images on LCD screens,yet this is something else reviews seem to rate as important.I have no interest in taking sports action shots either.Few reviews ever mention what I'm most interested in,apart from one - I read the K50 wasn't so good for wildlife(not sure why). I have had my Lumix DMC FZ18 for about 6 years,great camera(for me) but want to move onto an SLR as I am really interested in photography and want something that gives me more scope to develop skills/improve photo quality/use filters/get good panorama shots. I spend a lot of time walking (Scottish Highlands,sometimes abroad) and love landscape and wildlife photography.I have a birdwatching scope but would need an SLR to connect to it for photos(though that's not really essential). The Canon 600D and Nikon D3100 are coming out strong but I've also read the Nikon lens kit isn't great and you need to purchase something separate.I want a camera that offers superb quality images/colour/definition (who doesn't I suppose!),isn't too bulky and heavy and has image stabilisation(though it sounds like its the lens that has this ,not the SLR camera?) What I loved about my current camera is the Leica lens.I'm also assuming that most/all DSLRs have got an 'Auto' mode to just let you point and shoot until you get to grips with the technology? So - I'd really appreciate your views....many thanks for reading!
