Re: Need help with first DSLR

First, I can't thank you all enough for your helpful suggestions. I'm very impressed with the maturity of this place. I'm VERY new to all the jargons and technicalities of photography. Feels good. Thanks.

I can do refurbished. I'm open to that. I did get a chance to shoot with the 5200 and I know I'd like to make it my first. I really wish I could do the 7100 but it's just a little out of my budget.

So, the 5100 refurb IQ isn't much different than the 5200? Having seen the wisdom is alot of folks choices here, I'd rather put my money in the lenses as well. Especially if I can get the same (or better since I can get better lenses) quality from a 5100 as the 5200.

And yes, I'd love to do quite a bit of birding.
