I have 500$ to spend for a camera can someone tell me a good one that I can buy? Or maybe I will go a bit over the 500$,any suggestion is welcomed. Thx.
At that price Pentax KR is pretty good, you can also check the Nikon D5100 .
Nikon D3200 , the new best entry level!!
I own Nikon D3100 , it’s cheaper and it’s the good old best entry level
There’s no big gap among versions mentioned above without good lens. I personally have Nikon D5100 with telephoto lens and macro lens.
The reflex market updates quite quickly, professional photographers change their bodies quite fast, so i think you can find really good deals on second hand market, if you find a reliable dealer. Also, never (EVER, EVER ) buy a reflex+lens pack. Buy just the body, and spend some bucks on a good lense. . Body will give you features, speedness, usability, but not image quality, except for the sensor size.
I suggest to go with the Canon T3i (it`s 50 bucks over your money – body only) but you will love it. You will also need to buy a separate lens.
