My first DSLR coming soon

I have no idea since when I have been started to get into photography, perhaps by the influence of friends around me, now I would like to improve my photo shooting skills as well, in order to do that, I decided to get myself a DSLR.

At first what's in my mind is D80.

-10.2 mega pixels
-DX format 23.6 X 15.8mm CCD sensor
-11 area TTL autofocus
-ISO 100-1600 (3200 with boost)
-3 frams per second
-comes with AF-S DX Zoom-Nikkor 18-135mm f/3.5-5.6G IF-ED
-and more jargons

Expected Price: 2,000±

After surveying several camera shops, and saying that they have no more stock for D80 (out of production line), so I changed my mind to D90.

-12 megapixels
-DX format 23.6 X 15.8mm CMOS sensor
-11 area TTL autofocus
-ISO 200-3200 (6400 with boost)
-4.5 frames per second
-Dust Removal system
-Live View
-Video recording (able to record video in HD 720p)

-comes with AF-S DX Nikkor 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR
-and more jargons

Expected price: 3,900±

After some math calculations, with advice from friends, and to prevent to lay the heavy burden of installments unto myself, my friend suggested me to get the Sony A200 twin kit lenses.

-10 megapixels
-23.6 X 15.8mm CCD sensor
-9 points TTL autofocus
-ISO 100-3200
-3 frames per second
-Super Steady Shot
-Dust Removal system
-comes with 18-70mm all purpose-lens and 75-300mm telephoto zoom lens
-and more jargons

Expected price: 1,900±

Well, Sony A200 suits my needs as an entry level photographer and the price is superb compare to D80 and D90, even to D60, with 2 lenses provided. Yup, of course A200 has its pros and cons, but I will have to get use to it and learn how to handle it, as there's no camera that's perfect in this world.

A200, here I come......
