Which discontinued D series as backup?
Dec 26, 2013

Which discontinued D series model might offer best value as an inexpensive backup camera to pair with my old film SLR lenses (ie which require an AF motor in the body)? Said camera could also be used by my son to learn DSLR photography.

Required function:

  1. AF servo in body
  2. Min res 10mp
  3. DX or FX doesn't matter
  4. Built in flash
  5. Video not required

Thanks for suggestions in advance.
