Re: Not sure which way to go (d5100 or 350d)

For the D5100 your cost will be:

D5100 - $650 Body + 18-55 VR (special at bhphoto thats supposed to end tomorrow 29th)

55-200 - $250 (and there is another special wich saves you another $100 i.e $800 vs. $900 if you buy D5100+18-55+55-200 by tomorrow. Amazon may have the same specials.)

50 1.8G - $220 (nice lens for the money, however my personal choice would be the 35 1.8 DX lens for about the same $, prefer a 50mm FOV equivalent but its personal choice).

About $1000-1100 as opposed to $500 for the 350D. Would make an argument that the 5100 + lenses would be a better choice with respect to noise, sharpness, etc.

In any instance have fun with your new camera Canon or Nikon.
