Nikon D3000 review
Coming from the D40 on up, Nikon has continued to listen to the customer and give them the near perfect camera for beginner on up. The D3000 is great for the first-time user and the pro as a back-up. While the D3000 doesn't have the CMOS sensor like the D5000 or D90 and up, If you have never used the D90 for any lengthy period you will not miss it. This camera is extremely fast in good light and excellent with low-light, high ISO shooting.
The price is right and (you will likely not believe this until you find it out for yourself) you will not miss live-view.
No problems at all. I knew what I was getting and judged accordingly.
