Thanks to both of you!

I thought IMHO is some technical term related to cameras !!

EDIT:
Can someone post a bright tutorial regarding camera details, i.e. I want something which explains the basic questions like "what is the importance of a camera lens" and "what factors should be taken into consideration while purchasing a camera lens" etc.

Hi
Here's a useful link if you're in the market for a digital camera. You can get reviews of cameras you're interested in. There's also a forum for all sorts of camera related questions.

I suppose it is prudent at this stage to ask
exactly what experience do you have with photography

I second the recommendation for http://dpreview.com. It was the site I used to help me narrow down my choice of camera. In the end I went for the Canon 40d with a nice 17-55mm USM IS EF-S lens. It has proven to be a good setup for me (shooting mostly landscape and fairly frequently wildlife). It is a little expensive for what you are looking to spend but there are cheaper models in the EOS family that are solid cameras as well. Try out an XSi or XTi in your local photo shop and see how they fit you.

In the end the lens matters more than the body overall. A good lens will outlast its body by years.

This Olympus camera is my father's,
As I am living in India, the camera / photography clubs are rare to find !

Sorry, didn't understand the question !

EDIT:
Moreover that Olympus camera, I don't think is that good,
the problem is, when I finally click the button on the top [for taking the photograph of some x people in a party], the people already move somewhere till the time photo is taken, I mean the camera flash/whatever is slow !!

LOL!
The lens focuses the image onto the photo receiving surface and without it the images will look like blurly blobs.
