Hello- I know there have been several similar posts regarding this same question so pardon me if this is a repeat... I am shopping for my first DSLR. I am tired of using a P&S and ready to start learning more about photography. I am having a tough time deciding on the D3200, D3300, D5200, or D5300. I want something I won't get "bored with" in the next few years but at the same time I don't want a camera too advanced for a beginner. I don't expect to get great shots right out of the box but I...

Hi, I am thinking of upgrading from my D3000 to the D5100/D5200. I've had the D3000 since December 2011, and have been happy with it. It was my first DSLR. However, I'd like something that performs better in low-light situations, without the need for a tripod. I'd read that the performance of the D3000 at ISO 1600 or higher is awful, so I haven't really done much shooting beyond ISO 800. Does anyone have any experience shooting at the higher ISOs with the 3000? I like to shoot concerts/bands,...

I have D3000 which I use occasionally when I travel. Its been a good camera and I have taken many good shots with it. Recently I was travelling and since I returned noticed that when the On/Off button is turned to the "Off" position the camera still stays "On" and only goes to sleep mode. Previously, I know for sure that the camera use to go completely off and not to sleep mode as I have tried to take a shot in a hurry only to discover  that the "on/off" button had been turned to the "off"...

Well I want to get into this and yada yada, I want a D7100 but someone brought to my attention that I should get good lenses then the body. So can someone recommend me a Decent Body + Good lens combo for like 900-1000 Dollars? I would prefer the body being produced 2009+ but I've been thinking about Maybe a D90 body with a good lense or a D3000 body with a good lense? I haven't been able to grasp the concept of the lenses because I haven't been able to work with any.this is why I'm asking I...

Hi all,  Would really appreciate some advice on this as I'm tying myself up in knots reading forums/reviews. I currently have a Nikon D3000 + Nikon 35/1.8 + Nikon 55-200. I mainly enjoy photographing people (friends/family and street photography) and architecture (indoors/outdoors) with some landscape and wildlife when the opportunity arises.  I'm finding that I'm yearning for something wider than the 35 (52.5mm equivalent), especially for architecture and landscape. I'm moving to East Timor...

I've had my camera 12 months now - had 18-55 (sold) tamron 70-300 (sold) and now use nikon 18-200 VR (not the newer version).  I have a bit of money saved and would like to get a portrait lens.. I wanted to know the thoughts of everyone here - 50 mm 1.8g, 35mm from Nikon or something else? Don't think my budget will stretch to the 1.4 lens and my d3000 can't autofocus a d lens so AF-S only. Your help as always is appreciated. Steve

So, I am a hobbyist who takes mostly pictures of her adorable five children racing around and occasionally nice portraits and group shots of close friends and family.  My D3000 I have LOVED for the past few years, but am ready for something with a few more megapixels for bigger prints and some better ISO options. Should I stay with the entry level compact cameras (D5200) or do the mid-size cameras (possibly the D7100)  offer that much more? I don't want to get another entry-level and find...
