D3100 & 16-85 or D7000 & 18-105
Dec 27, 2010

I am planning on upgrading from my Nikon D70s. I like what I've found out about the D7000, but most reviewers suggest upgrading from the 18-105 kit lens to the 16-85 DX lens.

My questions is, how about combining the 16-85 lens with a D3100 body? From my experience, the lens is more important than the camera body, within a given format. The D3100 and D7000 both have the same image processor, I'm not that interested in video, and the difference in megapixels is secondary, IMO, to lens quality.

Obviously, I'm trying to save expense. What are your thoughts on the D3100/16-85 combination as opposed to the D7000/18-105 in terms of overall final image quality?

Thanks,
Joe
