First dslr

Hi  ,

i want to upgrade from my Canon S95 which is slow and can't get thin DOF.

I love to go fishing , lots of opportunities to make a nice shot .

I was thinking of buying a body with a fast prime , to learn to play with the DOF.

As i don't want to worry about some rain , i was looking at the a700 .

I like it because it has 2 control wheels .

a700 + 35mm f1.8  or a minolta 50mm f 1.7 ?

By the way , i held an a58 the other day ; these SLT's are really fast !!

Would the speed of the a700 turn me off ?

Other suggestions are welcome too , i prefer cheaper body with quality lens.
