hey i'm considering buying a DSLR camera (nikon D40) but i'm worried about the size of the camera and how easy will it be to carry it around.
Otherwise i will go for a Canon Powershot S3 IS.
The thing that troubles me is that although D40 is better than S3, the later already has a zoom len attached to it. So if i want to Zoom with D40 i'll have to buy another set of lens which is +150euro (i think)
The quality of the Nikon SLR system with a D40 easily outweighs the quality of the Canon S3 - and adds the possibility to change lenses and accessories. No matter the difference in cost - if you want a really small camera with outstanding performance, go D40
