Oh absolutely... there is nothing wrong with the 5100. The 3000 wasn't bad, but the 3100 and 3200 are much nicer. Also agreed on the mp rating. That was important back when cameras were fighting to break 1mp... there was a huge difference between 1mp and 2mp.

Anything beyond 10-14mp is just icing on the cake. It's more important on "point and shoot" cameras because of their reliance on "digital zoom", which was quite literally simply pre-cropping. You can get a beautiful poster-sized print from a 6-10mp camera with quality glass.

I'd rather grow into a camera than grow out of one, if that makes sense.

Between $250-$300. That's for the body and a 18-55mm lens, battery, cables, strap, and lens cover.

If it's in good shape, that's a square deal.

My 3100 kit was $450 new. 18-55, but did not include cables (got a million USB cables anyways).
Picked up a factory refurbed 55-200 from Adorama for $150, and around $150 for a Sigma 610 flash from Best Buy.

Tried to pick a gadget bag, but decided to go local with that (Best Buy). Found a cool Nikon bag for $80. Best Buy had a Canon bag that was a little larger for $10 or $15 less. I bought that one, then pried the Canon logo off of the flap.

The rubber lens hoods are worthless for the 18-55... they start to get into the corners quickly, but Nikon makes a nice snap-on hood for the lens (again, Adorama was my source).
Definitely pick up a circular polarizer if you plan outdoor shooting.

The only difference between these two shots was the position of the polarizer.
Fluffy clouds would have really popped against the darker sky.

90%of the time just my iphone5, because the best camera you have is the one you're carrying!

Videos on Canon 5Dmkiii with 24-70L
Photos on Panasonic GF-1 with 20mm pancake lens.

I'll be grabbing some new lenses here soon so if anyone is looking for Nikon kit lenses (18-55 and 55-200 VR) to get started in photography let me know.

Best Buy has the Nikon D5100 for $590, and the 70-300mm was $580. If you buy both, you get $200 off! I debated - $1000 for a great lens and a great mid-level camera, but I ended up just doing the $580 for the lens and sticking with the D60 I already had.
