Buy Olympus Evolt E-500 its the best camera for Shooting moving objects. with this camera you can buy Olympus Zuiko 40 - 150 F4.0 - 5.6 or Olympus Zuiko 14 - 45 F 2.8 - 3.6 lens for better performance. if you dont want to go for olympus lens then you can buy Sigma 50 - 500 F 4.0 - 6.3 or Sigma 70 - 200 F2.8.

Re: Best digital camera for shooting birds & nature

If you want to shoot birds conventionally with a 35 mm camera then you will need a powerful and costly and not to mention heavy lenses. small birds are a real challenge if for no other reasons, they are small and they rarely stay still. they require much patience,a fairly long and fast lens With the integrated 3x optical zoom on the camera plus the 20 X magnifications on the spotting scope means, so that you can get over 2800 mm magnifications 35 mm equivalent. With such magnifications, one can even use this system to photograph and identify the bands on the legs of banded birds.
