Re: Not a bad value.

It's a great value.  I saw a D3500 kit at my local Sam's Club for $399 with the 18-55mm and 70-300mm (non vr) kit lenses.  These affordable and inexpensive cameras are what allow people to get into photography in the first place.  They take great pictures and are good for starting out.  Not too many people start out the hobby by buying expensive, full frame cameras and expensive lenses.

With the camera market shrinking, these types of cameras are what keep the companies alive.  High volume, low profit margin.  Now they need to make affordable mirrorless cameras in the sub $500 range to entice me and others into going into that format.
