Re: Help regarding buying my first DSLR

Go for the D5100 or D3200. AS for the features on the D7000 that you won't have, as a beginner you don't know which features are going to become inportant to you if you take a liking to the hobby. In fact, after a while yuou mught want a D300/400 for action or a FF D700/800 for greater DOF, skipping the D7000 level all together.

You could even go with a refurb D5000 for $389 from KEH.

Spend your money on good AF-S lenses. You will figure out what your second body will be eventually.
