So I started research in earnest about a month ago, weeding through all of the options and sensors, do hickies and doo dads available on each model of pro-sumer dslrs to replace a 4 year old 8 mp fugi S7000...
(Mahalo D. Brooks for your info and responses to earlier posts.)
I am a NOVICE looking to put more energy into a life long hobby.
That said I am willing to spend 1500 give or take...
SO.... Who makes the most intuitive operating menus?
Correct me if I am wrong here, but once you get into this level of camera ie Sony A700, Sigma D14, Nikon D300 et al...for someone like myself and the range of which the camera will be used, not for income, the difference in which brand I purchase is negligible?
I live on an island with no retailers to go and handle the camera and futz with menus to see which one 'suits' me?
Any one have an opinion? ha ha
I do not have lenses or a predisposed education to anything other than my p&s fugi.
