sub 400 or 500 dslr
8 months ago

My cousin is looking for a dslr preferably for under $400, but could probably be talked into 500 if need be. I am thinking of the d3100 refurb for 350 which comes with the18-55 lens. Do you think she can do better? Camera will be used to take photos of her two young kids.

For bokeh purposes, do you think the 35 dx or 50 1.8 lens is better? I will suggest one of those two lenses for portraits...I am leaning to recommending the 50 f 1.8 afs
Any thoughts?
