Great you’re getting into photography. I only hope you also approach it in an artistic, and not only commercial way ;)

Ehh, I’d skip those and get a Pentax K-x or K-r. Both out perform both of those with ease and the K-x is cheaper, the K-r isn’t much more. But, if buying into a particular brand is more important, I’d probably go with the D3100 (or save for a D90 ).

Just wanted to say that I’m also considering purchasing the Nikon D3100 as my first DSLR . For the price, I’ve read a lot of great reviews about it but I’m still not sure (mostly due to inexperience with photo gear in general). I’m not interested in “saving for something higher end” or spending more than the price point of the D3100 so it’s not really helpful for people to say that we should just buy something much more expensive.

I think Kailoon purchased the D5000 before but I could be wrong. Are there any similarities to this line of Nikons in general? I know some people have brand bias but it would be great to have some general feedback about those specific cameras that misled is asking about (cuz I wanna know too ;) ).

Ya, I use the D5000 before and it was great! But I am using D7000 now. The reason for the upgrade is that D7000 has a motor inside where I can purchase cheaper lens. Further, it has lots of great features and a better body :)

I’d say, if you have the budget, go for D7000 , else the D90 will be the second option. D3100 is good too, but you will need to buy expensive lens with af-s. Further, it uses the latest technology, why not? :)

I’m using the d3100 right now and i’m totally happy. The Picture Quality is amazing for the price (i payed 540€ with the 18-55mm VR lens). So i would definitely recommend the d3100.

Out of curiosity, and not that I have anything against it, why Nikon? I’m just curious what made you chose Nikon over Canon, Pentax, Olympus, etc.
