If you go the dSLR route, I would highly recommend getting a used one. Quality dSLRs such as canon and Nikon are built like tanks, so you would be wise to take advantage of the deep discounts. Cameras are a lot like cars -- as soon as you take them off the lot, their value drops by 30% -- same goes for dSLRs.

Actually the Panasonic DMC-LX3 appreciated in value once everyone realized that Panasonic would not keep up with the US demand. Lotís of people were selling them used for $100-$200 above MSRP and people were actually buying them.

The new Panasonic GF1 is getting to be the same way. You canít find them for MSRP anywhere in the US and some people are already advertising them for $200-$300 above MSRP.

You have to also consider that REALLY good glass can hold its value as well.
