intro d3200 kit...recommendations?!
Nov 8, 2013

I have a friend who is about to get into photography. She's never owned an slr, wants my advice about a kit she could get for ~$700 (OR LESS).

I'm gonna suggest the d3200 with the 18-55 kit + 50mm 1.8d

And then just little things like 32 gb card, a lens cleaning kit, and a camera bag.

That pretty much brings it to ~$700

Any ideas on changes to the kit? I don't think she would be brave enough to drop the kit lens and just get a prime...

D7100, 18-200mm, 35mm 1.8g, 50mm 1.8d, 85mm 1.8d, 135mm 2.8 manual focus, sb-700 flash
