But just out of curiousity, with my limited budget of $500, what would be the best kit to get?


If it was me, I would be looking at used Nikons, tho Canon, Pentax and others are very good deals too. But a used D80 could be had. I recently sold one. Great DSLR. Which lens to buy depends on the used offer and what you like to shoot. You couldn't go wrong with any of Nikon's glass, it's definitely you get what you pay for, but the more economical glass is still very good and you'd be able to make comparisons with your Lumix gear. I now use a Nikon D90 with a range of lenses from 11-16mm (Tokina zoom), to Nikon 16-85mm and 80-200mm plus a 35mm f/1.8. My big P&S is a Lumix FZ35 with 18x zoom. I am really jonesing for a Lumix LX5 for a real compact camera with good IQ. Hope this helps
