I cannot tell you which of these three is best for you, but I can tell you what I bought as my first DSLR a couple of months ago: a refurbished D3100.

It came with the 18-55mm kit lens. If I had to do it over again I would try to buy the body only and buy a sharper lens, like the 35 f/1.8 prime for $200.

Regarding the D3100, I think it has been an excellent learning platform. From what I have read here and elsewhere, the D3200 is an even better camera. That said, I'm taking advantage of Nikon's current "Buy together and save" promotion and have just ordered the D5200 and 70-300 lens.


That deal is on until June 29th according to the B&H page.
