I bought the Nikon D5100 about 2 months ago, and i couldn`t be happier with my choice :) They are still on sale at Best Buy for $650, which includes the camera & kit lens. I purchased a bundled package that included the extra 55-200mm lens, 16gb memory card, and camera bag. this package was $850. and it looks like that is still the price on http://bestbuy.com.
I did plenty of research before deciding on this camera. i was trying to decide between the Nikon d5100 and the famous Canon T3i. These are the main 5 reasons I chose the Nikon:
1. longer battery life, 50% longer
2. better color/image quality
3. 3X faster startup
4.$100 cheaper, according to http://Bestbuy.com sale prices
5. much hotter looking! :)
when i went to the store to check these out, the t3i felt bulky, rugged-like. But when i held the Nikon d5100, i knew it was THE ONE! LOL, it felt comfortable in my hand, and i just absolutely loved the look of it! I was so excited to take this home & start playing with it. There is ALOT to learn, but i am so glad I made the right choice :) Its really fun! So far, I have taken some great pictures!!
if you are looking for a beginner DSLR, I HIGHLY recommend this one. You will LOVE it!! :) Also, the review from http://snapsort.com helped in my decision making process. i hope it helps you too!
no hard feelings against the Canon t3i :)
Which DSLR camera do you prefer? and why?
Or, which one would you like to own?
I hope you enjoyed this post :)
