Hey guys,
Off on holibobs next month and wanting a decent camera. Have an Olympus SP550 - which has an 18 optical zoom. It's an ok camera. Only had it 9 months.. But I'm bored of it and some of my pics are crap with it.. plus it didnt like getting very wet in New York back in May.

So I'm after your help.. I'm only young and I'd reaaaally like to get into photography in a big way. I want a SLR - with a decent zoom lense ( Maybe equivalent to mine ish ?) and anything else you guys suggest purlease!

I have a budget of around 650 ?

'elp please ?
