ok here's the problem
i have been looking for a DSLR to replace my old F601, but all the cameras (SLRs) which i liked are way out of my price range.

so i will have to settle for a "regular" digital camera.
main focus is not to much "shutter" lag, a good and hopefully fast enough Auto focus. (yeah i know about prefocusing but still let me be hopeful) and good image quality (i am not a photoshop god).
if the camera is able to do some burst/serial shots at reasonable speed that would be a great bonus

it will be used for mountainbiking pictures most of the time.
thanks a lot.
any help and input is greatly appreciated.
