Hello, I am interested in getting a digital slr camera and was wondering what advice some of y'all had that are more knowledgeable on these things. I know Daniel is the photography expert around here but i'm pretty sure there are quite a few more with slr's.

I have a pentax optio w20 that works good for fishing pics right now, but i am wanting an slr for the other half so she can take high quality pictures when we go hiking and of me fishing as well. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks.
