D5100 + 18-105, + 55-300vr, + 35/f1.8 = $2152.00

The creative potential of the first kit is huge.

Not a very demanding kit in terms of many things though. Mostly slow glass and not well suited to indoor events. I would try the D7100/D7000 option with a few fast primes as a starter first. I like the 18-105 on my D70 but it really starts to fall behind on the D7K with better quality glass. For most shooters though, it would be fine and most never go past the kit lens anyways. The D5100 with the 18-105 would suit the vast majority of shooters in the consumer range anyways. The average person here...would be a bit limited though, IMO. When the D7K came out...I'm certainly glad I didn't go with a D5000 kit even though it could easily keep up in many lighting and average output size conditions. The D90 certainly still does.

My opinions are my own and not those of DPR or its administration. They carry no 'special' value (except to me and Lacie of course)
