Sorry for the slow reply - I barely have any internet acces atm.

I don't have an exact budget, would prefer not to go over about $800 or $900 but I havn't really looked into prices much yet.

Looks like I'll make a trip to a camera shop to have a look in a couple of weeks. I get my Buster boy back 2 weeks from today after 3 months apart and want to buy a camera around the same time so expect to be inundated with pics.

I love my D60 personally. Once again the only thing holding me back are lenses and flashes and the like. Love the camera, it's easy to use and I get good pics.

Anyway, I've got a Nikon D40X and it's perfect. I shoot Softball, Baseball, Children, Portriats, Playing/Pets, etc and have had no problems that couldn't be fixed with a different lens.
Not sure if it's what she's talking about, but we looked around for a while before we found a camera that didn't have a second or more lag between pressing the shutter button and the actual picture being taken. In the meantime there were a lot of missed pictures of our fast kids and dogs (lots of butt shots and the backs of heads, lol).

It's a Nikon Coolpix p90, not a DSLR though, so not much help on that front.

For a DSLR a fast lens would completely take care of that.

I've got a longer lens that takes alot longer to focus (longer, by like 1-2 seconds lol) than my regular Nikon 18-55. It's all in the lens.

Ooo, that's nice. I'm looking to see what's out there in terms of low f/stop lenses.

It's so much better to shoot with in so many situations than the others which are the kit 3.5- 5.6. I don't have a flash but i can get semi decent indoor shots easily which is impossible with my other lenses.

I'd like one with a little bit less in the depth of field department next I think. This one's technically a macro lens but it's still versatile. These were all taken with it when it was overcast and getting dark outside: http://www.chazhound.com/forums/t105347/
