comment How do I choose between an SLR or an expensive P&S?
Thanks for the answer. For shooting indoors what would be the lense that you would recommend for Canon ?

comment Is the lack of AF Motor on the Nikon D5100 an important factor?
I already moved over to Canon 550D long back but I am interested in knowing if you recommend D3200 over D5100 ?

comment What are the advantages of moving from the Canon 550D to Nikon D5100?
@all : which brand is more expensive for lenses assuming an equivalent lense and what would be the cost differences ?

@matt: I think this warrants a big answer from an expert like you :-) I am not sure about EF mount lenses( i am researching this now). I did know the AF,AF-S lenses and that the cameras with AF-motor can have more and cheaper lenses. I am not sure why everyone here is opposing my understanding(obviously I have missed something :-). If you do a comparison of Nikon d5100 with Canon 550D on snapsort . com the first advantage of canon 550D is built in focus motor. Please help.

@dreamager : Canon 550D has a built in Motor and so does 1100D. Can you please explain ?

comment How do I photograph small fish in a fish tank?
@drew: It is ok mate. Most Bettas live only for two years. Considering that he was with you for 1.5 years is good. It was a real nice fish.

comment How do I choose between an SLR or an expensive P&S?
Thanks Matt. By now you might have figured out that I am entry level by all standards. I notice that Mirror less cameras are less expensive that regular DSLR's. Why is it so, what flexibility will it take away ? Also I notice that I am actually asking for a lot of things from my Camera( Indoor, FPS, Zoom ) etc so a compromise has to happen at some stage. Also by now, I am already thinking about SLR but somehow FPS seems important, also I feel the "pray and spray" works while clicking a 1 year old. Your thoughts ?

Hi Maynard, thanks for the answer. Happy Parenting :-) Believe me as the kid grows up, the elusive moments become rare and the Sports mode comes into picture :-)

Thanks Itai. Do you mean to say even with an advanced lense a DSLR will not improve at FPS ? D5100 has nothing close to 11 FPS :-( and others might be very expensive. Does FPS Change in an SLR with MegaPixels ? I mean if I reduce the MP in a picture will that improve FPS ?

Hi Maynard, thanks for the answer. Can you please confirm some of the understandings that I develped by talking to some other photographers : A. DSLR's are generally slow to click. For eg. A baby who won't pose or loses interest very soon is less likely to be clicked better by a DSLR. Does this also mean that a DSLR without an adequate lense will not be good in Sports mode B. The default lense with Nikon 5100 55:18 won't be good for Zoom ?

@Dream : I understand, sadly I fall in the same category who has no idea of Focal length. So why does Sony have a 30X Zoom and the SLR' with more cost without a Zoom. Does a 5100 without a Zoom equivalent to a Sony with 30X Zoom.
