If you want something simple, buy Canon EOS 500D body with Canon EF-S 18-200 mm IS or Canon EF-S 18-55mm IS lens or the new 15-85 mm IS lens. Going to DSLR is going to a system, not just a camera. You need a body and a lens at a minimum. You may also need a flash (or speedlite) later on. If you can purchase 5DMkII, then go for it. It is a full frame sensor DSLR that can accept EF lenses (not EF-S lenses) but can go to places that are dark (like night time or museum) without using Flash. Learn about Digital Camera ISO rating too.
