Re: Nikon D3100 as my first DSLR

Spot on. Great handling, delivers very good pics. Mine still gets well used; tried a D5500 but preferred the general feel of the D3100. Nearly always use the 16-85 lens with mine, and it gets used exclusively for landscapes. Just beginning to think about replacement, wondering if Nikon will do a DX mirrorless; a newer sensor might be worth it..

I also use the Df a lot. They're different sorts of camera and it's nice having the choice. Just come back from a Scottish trip when I used the Df nearly the whole time; it does have that extra bit of quality and is equally great to use. But not so much that I'll stop using the D3100.
