Ignore the price shown, you can get it at BHPhotovideo for US$1100

I had a look at the new Canon 100D today. It costs R6800 and to add a Sigma 70-300mm lens at R1700. I dont really want to spend more that 10K at the moment to start with, lenses can come later down the line.
There is also the option to buy an A200 Sony which comes with standard 18-70mm lens, also included is a 75-300mm lens for about R8K.

What do you guys think?

Another quick thing, Im new to the whole photography thing. When looking at the Canon earlier, the sales guy but the 300m lens on for me to see and take a test photo, the zoom didnt really look that good?? It was about the same as viewing with a naked eye? Is that normal, will the pic be clear once you go edit and zoom in on a PC?

Never mind I was being a bit doff. I got myself the Sony A200 with standard 18-70mm lens and 75-300mm lens. Very happy with it so far. Will save for a 500mm lens.

Thanks for all the advice guys.
