I wonder which is better and why, for an amateur user.

When I was looking for a new camera I made a list of what I thought I wanted and then spent many weeks researching on the net - prices, weights, features etc. I narrowed it down to 3 - Olympus, Nikon and Canon. I dropped the Canon (heaviest of the 3 I think). Then went to the shop to try them. The Olympus felt just right in my hands, the Nikon was difficult for me to us - none of the controls seemed in a logical place. So I bought the Olympus E410 and I haven't been disappointed. Even my son (who chooses to use film) was impressed with it.

I hope this gives you something think about and perhaps helps a bit.

Sheila has good advice. Research your requirements and price range and narrow it down to a few, then get to a shop and get them in your hand. Find out which one is comfiest and go with that. I'm a Canon girl. I was undecided when I first went shopping but when i held them I knew that I didn't like Nikon because it felt cheap, nasty and it was awkward for me to operate some of the buttons. The Canon felt sturdy and was ergonimic. If you're an amateur you don't necessarily need to limit yourself to the market leaders. Sony are trying to establish a good market position so you get a lot more for your money with them.
