The lenses made by Olympus are very good quality-wise, apparently, but are quite pricey (a 90-250 f2.8 costs right around 6,600 dollars).

I also just went down the DSLR road...with a Canon Rebel XT. In my case the main reason for buying it was that I already had two Canon lenses, so I went for the basic (and cheapest) camera+lens set I could find (down here they don't sell just the body).
Talking with other spotters (also with other cameras), we all feel that at these (entry) level there is really no big technical or quality difference, and that you will probably choose your DSLR because of other reasons (cheap offer, how it feels in your hands, already have some lenses...I think you get the point).
So, my advise would be: Just go out and try some out, see which one feels more comfortable, and which one meets your budget best. But remember, the camera is only half (or even less, according to some much more experienced photog), the other half are lenses! And spend at least as much money on camera as on lenses, try always to go for the best possible lenses in terms of quality.
Hope to have helped you a little, and if you want feel free to contact me per email.

How much is a "good" lens, like 75-300mm? Or is that what I need?
