Stay away from the Nikon D3200 and D 5100's.  They are manual focus unless you buy the newer, more expensive lenses.  In your price range, you might want to look at a used Nikon D300 which has a very fast AF and accurate too. They are around $ 500 on Keh Camera.  That would leave you $ 500 for one or two good lenses.  The Nikon D lenses are cheaper than the newer G lenses and have an aperture ring if you ever get into macro photography.

This is very misleading. Any new lens you buy for a camera at that level will work fine. Only Nikon's D lenses require an in-body motor. You can avoid them and still get whatever galas you need no problem.
