Ginny I went and got a different camera altogether!
They advised me in 'jessops' a very very well known shop that Canon EOS 450D would produce better pics.
As I was still unsure I rang my 'tutor' at home in Ireland and he said to line em up and feel them with eyes closed as they all are really very similar in quality.
I found the Olympus 210 (220 not in yet) didnt have that 'battery bump' which I was used to in the Nikon D50 and useful as a grip.
Weight wise they were very similar and so I opted for the Canon.
I also tried the Sony Alpha but that was heavier than the other two.
I hope I have made the right choice.
I am happy.
also bought a gorilla!!! tripod! Ha.
