For entry level, if you are going to pay ~ $650, the Pentax K-r is the best camera you can buy, bar none. And then later for another $300 you can add the 55-300, a stellar telephoto that is extremely compact and for the price, the IQ is outstanding.

However, if you have a friend that has a lot of lenses in another brand, I would agree to go with that brand. However if you are starting off brand new without any other connections, I recommend the K-r without reservation. For your exact price point, you can't get better IQ.

Black, $630

White, $685 ($665 if you go to "other buying options")
