I'm a beginner too... But I cant afford a nice DSLR, so I found a pretty nice priced SLR 35mm to play around with.

Hello Freezeover I am from India. I too cannot afford a DSLR right now. And I am using a Nikon F601. Which I find just great. How about you?

I agree with 'freezeover. The choice of camera must be based on ones understanding of his/her needs. But generally for a beginner, a NIKON D80 should be awesome. Buy a lens seperately instead of the kit lens.

Oh.. and to answer your question, I know several pro photographers. They all use multiple cameras depending on what they need to do. One uses 2 really big and really expensive Nikons, and another uses an Nikon with a Canon as a backup. And another (artistic one) uses 2 Sony's. So its really just a matter of personal preference.
