    Default Help im confused

    Sorry guys, I am new to this so I have a few questions and I hope you guys can help me out. I am actually planning to buy a nikon dslr but I have no idea which one to get for a newbie. I need recommendations and when I purchase the camera, does the lens comes with it or I need to buy it myself. Thank you guys so much .

    For most basic functions, try D60. If you want more functions to play with and more advanced, try D90. It'll last you for a long time. If you want lens to come with it, ask for the kit lens when you purchase.

    If you're willing to wait, try the D5000 that's coming out soon.

    More helpful if you tell us what kind of pictures or event are you planning to take most, example will be indoor or outdoor, group portrait, or landscape or candid etc. This can help us in sugesting certain equipment to you base on your budget.

    Look in the Nikon sub-forum, there's a price guide sticky there.

    agree.. D5K to me is like standing between D60 and D90 regarding handling and picture quality ? Guess we all have to wait and see ~ ~ ~

    you can even consider a second hand body, and buy a good lens with rest of your budget..
    can take a look at ken rockwell's website for some useful info on Nikon cameras, or go to this fotobookmark website for more links to useful photography websites...

    all will do, it depends on you..

    you can buy it separately or together as a kit, there are so many lenses

    maybe you need to read up more before you step into this area
