    I bought m43 Panasonic G3 to replace my D90.
    1 small bag bring 1 body + 3 lenses, still lighter than D300 + 1 lens.

    Good luck!

    Congratulations! I have a GF3 to complement my D7000 (which is much lighter than the D300) and dayuum it makes a huge difference for a whole day of shooting!

However due to my budget I have also been considering the D5100 or the D90. Once I have the $1600 gonna go down and molest the camera sets :P I'm a student so yeah no random purchases. And I'm also planning to get a 50mm or a 35mm lens. I have something against 2nd Hand Stuff due to a incident in a previous hobby which left me like wary of 2nd purchases although there are some pretty good deals in the forum :P Opinions would be greatly appreciated Been considering the Mirrorless camera though, however due to my clumsy hands I don't think I should.

    Anyone knows is the MS Photo 60D EFs 18-135 deal still on?

    Greatly appreciate you guys comments and opinions.

    Sorry for any grammatical or spelling errors.
    Buy something that you can sell off easily in b&s with minimum loss.
    Why? Because that is a very high chances that you might want to upgrade once you know what you really want !

    Its not hard way, it makes learning much easier though. 5d mark iii is easy on high iso, so u can get high shutter speed without burning your image quality... Makes life easier

    Buying a 5D mkiii doesn't do anything for learning.

    Having an awesome camera doesn't give you maxed out Experience Points

    I suggest saving money on the body and spending more on things that don't drop in value so quickly (or things that don't become obsolete quickly): i.e. lens mainly, but also tripod, flash, etc. Body becomes obsolete faster and drops in value faster.

    but it does
    there are no Auto or scene modes, nor is there a flip-out LCD for self-portraits
    Maybe referring to learning the hard (on pocket) way... hahaha

    Aren't aperture priority and shutter priority also "auto modes"? Why not get a Bessa R2 instead for experience points? Fully manual, and film to boot!
